    I can reach and feel the bottom of my own tailbone now-- not the end, but underneath the tailbone itself? I can feel the actual end of it. It causes me some pain whenever I'm sitting and something is pressing on it, and I'm worried really badly about it. I had a pilonidal cyst back in 2021...

    So my situation right now is very difficult. I have some serious health consequences (edema, pain, difficulties walking, inability to gain body fat). So every time I am trying to gain weight I am only gaining that painful fluid and that is why I think I might have undiagnosed refeeding syndrome...

    I feel like almost for a year now my body is unable to break down fat because my weight dropped too low last year. I gained xxkg in a short amount of time and it is all fluid. I can barely walk and the swelling is very visible and painful. Especially my buttocks swells up to a massive size, but...

    Every time I eat recently I get the worst stomach pain ever. It kind of only comes on if I move it isn't constant and if I stay very still it doesn't hurt but as soon as I move too much it feels like knives are being stabbed into my stomach? Is this because I'm restricting, can this be a side...

    So I am at a new low weight for myself, lowest I have been since high school or maybe even lower? It hurts so bad. It hurts to sleep on my side (I could never fall asleep on my back or my stomach), it hurts to sit in most chairs, my knees hurt way more than usual, and I have bruises on the side...

    Does anyone else’s tailbone stick out a ton? Like to the point that you can’t sit the same way for longer than 20-30 minutes? If I sit too long my tailbone literally bruises.
