Psychiatrist 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Excessive eating with psychological symptoms (stress) common in atypical depression and bullimia nervosa. These conditions are psychological problems.

Treatment is available for such condition, so do not loose hope. Just take first step by getting yourself evaluated by psychiatrist to confirm diagnosis and to rule out any medical condition. In treatment combined treatment with medicine, lifestyle modification and behavior therapy will be helpful.

Wish you good health and all the best.
