I experience a range of different things that - it seems - don't usually accompany each other, which has me confused about what might be wrong. Here are some: insatiable appetite - 'hunger' after meals, headaches after eating sweet things (unless accompanied by something substantial), drinking a lot of water, low blood sugar when I restrict carb intake, cravings, intolerance to milk. I also have a somewhat irregular bowel. And I get moody. Sometimes depressed, sometimes rageful. I have underdeveloped muscles, excessive fat (though I am average or even underweight) and difficulty getting rid of the excess fat. And I get headaches and weird appetite problems when I exercise. Admittedly I have struggled with eating disorders, and thus have probably done some harm to my body, but I'm not convinced that there weren't physiological complications in the first place. Can anyone give me some advice? Could I be pre-diabetic? Is it GERD? Could it be something else?

Hi Junie, I can imagine your frustration dealing with these symptoms.  First, I would say to make an appointment with your doctor, go through this list with him/her and hopefully you'll be scheduled for some lab tests.  Blood and urine tests can rule out conditions as well as point in directions of diseases or conditions and only then can you and the doctor begin to understand what's going on. Knowing a family health history is important too.  Sometimes a diet can create lots of problems especially if you might have the beginnings of diabetes or something else.  So, IMHO, I would suggest having this checked out with lab tests.  Good luck and check back with us.
