What are the symptoms of eating disorder?

Hi, I m 15 years old and developing an eating disorder. I don t know what kind, since it it does not fit into either anorexia or bulimia. I binge eat frequently just to show my parents I m eating but when I m at school I don t eat much. My nails are brittle, I pee way more often & have had insomnia. Is this an eating disorder? Or is it just a psychological belief? I m 5 6 138lbs. Please help?
