Bulimia Symptoms and Bulimia Treatment

Bulimia symptoms needing bulimia treatment are generally include recurrent episodes of binge eating, zoning out on food, eating secretly and then getting rid of the food. People who have bulimia nervosa may vomit, causing swollen glands at the jaw and cheeks; misuse medications such as laxatives and diuretics; fast or diet and then binge; or exercise excessively. They may feel full after even a small meal, with an urge to get rid of the food.
