Okay, as far as I know, this hasn't been asked before.

I have been diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa, and I have been in and out of treatment for the last four years.

When I am closer to a "healthier" weight, my menses cease to exist or sporadically come and are entirely normal. Every time my weight falls (I currently have a BMI of 16.1), I begin to have constant spotting. Right now, this has been happening for three weeks.

Has anyone else experienced this?

It is as though my body responds the exact opposite of what should be expected - I also have severe tachycardia associated with low weights (where bradycardia is the perceived norm in individuals with anorexia).

Thank you in advance for your input.
