My nephew is 5 years old. He has a severe eating disorder. I believe it's called eating aversions. He weighs about 35 pounds. He panics when it comes time to eat. He vomits up almost everything he does eat. He vomits 3-4 times everyday. He has a fear of eating now and when he does ear, it takes him 15 minutes to chew something up. He will hold it in his mouth until it basically dissolves. It has gotten so bad that he has nightmares and will call out about eating. My sister is doin everything that she can. Has taken him to many doctors in Birmingham to have test run and they determined that his stomach/intestines flip and that what's causing the vomiting. But we all know its something more. He has severe anxiety now. He is scared of mostly everything and will panic/ hyperventilate in stressful or overwhelming environments. He is a very nervous/sick little boy, and we want to get him better.View Thread
