Extreme anger and eating disorder

User Profile
I'm really lost with where to put my question.. Recently I have felt myself getting angrier and with any little argument for example last night my boyfriend and I argued and I just started punching myself in the head, I gave myself deep scratches on my face and arm, and I laid on the floor repeating I hate myself. Including the fact I've developed bulimia/anorexia and I just I don't know what is wrong with my brain, I have super highs when I'm happy I am SO HAPPY but when I'm low it's dangerous... I don't even feel like its myself I feel like I'm watching someone else do this to my body. I go through regret and remorse but any little thing can trigger this. I have a wedding to go to and I'm covered in bruises and scratches clear on my face. I don't know what to do. Its one thing after another and I cannot control my eating disorder now I've lost 40 pounds in 2 months. Should I see a mental health specialist? Do I have a mental disorder or is this normal? Is this being bipolar?

Your symptoms are more likely due to psychosomatic conditions and hence you would need a psychiatric assessment to help your symptoms better.

Hence please consult a psychiatrist in person for proper help.
