Does anyone have mild chest pain or "flutters" after puring? Heart Murmurs/Bulimia

I sometimes have very mild chest pain or more like "twinges" after I purge. I know this isn't normal and I was told several years ago that I had a mild hurt murmur and was wondering if this could contribute. Actually no one told me about the heart murmur I just read about it when I requested a copy of my medical records a while back and was wondering if a heart murmur could be caused by bulimia and what exactly is a hear murmur? I assume if it was something serious the doctor would have atleast TOLD me about it in person.

Re: Does anyone have mild chest pain or "flutters" after puring? Heart Murmurs/Bulimia

Hey!

I don't know much about it but yeah, i get heart flutters n my chest hurts as well as gettin bad stomach pains after purging. All i kno is that bulimia messes up ur electrolytes and causes an imbalance which is why we get the heart things. I think u should bring it up with ur doctor though, just to check that it isnt anything else and to see if u might need to take potassium supplements or something. Its best only to take them under the guidance of ur doc apparently. Have u had any blood tests recently? Id jus ask ur doctor coz itl take a load off ur mind. I personally havnt said anything yet. Not sure what to do coz i had blood tests fairly recently but never heard the results so am asumin they were fine but i kno my purging has got a LOT worse than then...

Anyway, hope this helps!

I am going in for a complete physical next month. My potassium levels are and have always been normal...never low. IN fact all my labs are always normal, I was slightly anemic once but iron took care of that. I take extra potassium supplements and eat a lot of bananas especially after a purge.
