Anorexia Nervosa - Symptoms

The symptoms of anorexia nervosa vary widely. In some people, they are very severe. In others, they are quite mild. In most cases, anorexics tend to have very thin bodies, dry or yellowish skin, and very low blood pressure. Young girls often have amenorrhea (pronounced a-men-uh-REE-uh), the failure to menstruate. They may also experience abdominal pain, constipation, and lack of energy. Chills, the growth of downy body hair, and damaged tooth enamel (from vomiting) are other symptoms of the condition.
