skeletalscrible: support anyone?

Hi, i am new to this community but not to LJ..
I found it in search of some support for weight issues.
I hope i came to the right place, cuz my last search was a complete backfire. lol.

Anyways to tell you a little about myself, i have a BMI of 14.5 [according to my doctor and online calculator]
I weigh around 90lb .. but have been losing/gaining from 87-91lb.
It has been this way throughout my teenage years and still now.
When i was little i was a consistent 60lb all the time, and gained the most weight in middle school [go figure, puberty].

I have looked far and wide for ways on successfully gaining weight, and i've heard it all..
I've been trying to work hard at it, maybe not hard enough, but i haven't gained any significant weight.
My doctor had all these exams and tests done on me but found no reason for the way i am.
However she worried that if i don't gain weight i will undergo similar effects as if a had an eating disorder like anorexia.

This does not sound pleasing to me at all, and im afraid of losing my period..
It would be nice to hear a success story or two right about now, so if you have one, please share :]

have you spoke with a dietitian?

The only thing I've ever heard of like this is I had this friend that could eat and eat and eat like 3000-5000 calories a day and not gain weight.

Have you been tested for intestinal parasites like worms?

I think a doctor and a dietician would know much more about all this. I wish you luck, update us on what happens!
