Well, any disorder needs to be diagnosed by a doctor

I mean ednos is basically having criteria for another eating disorder (anorexia, bulimia, etc) but not fitting all the criteria. For example, someone might have all the characteristics of anorexia, but not have be underweight and still have their period - thus they can't be diagnosed with anorexia and would likely be diagnosed with ednos instead.

If you are diagnosed, the same thing happens as for any other disorder. Therapy and treatment and such. It's hard, but worth it.

I wish you the best of luck; feel free to PM me if you ever need someone. <3

Basically what Val said.

I was told I had EDNOS as I fitted all the criteria for purging type Anorexia except for the fact that I did not have my period.

Its your life, exist and wonder why.
