Have you ever had pica?

My mom has been compulsively eating ice at times and we figured out it is probably pica. However, she had lab tests the morning we decided on this, so she'll probably need to wait three months for an iron and other tests. She does see the doctor Wednesday. I don't understand why low iron makes you want to eat ice.

I thought this was about eating rodents.

The mental illness/behavioral issue pica is usually stuff that is bad for you. Doubt ice qualifies. Good if there is a test to rule it out though. I have a minor in Psychology, but my abnormal psych stuff was a LONG time ago.

My mom said I used to occasionally eat dirt from age 2-1/2 to 3-1/2. I used to like to crunch ice from my soft drinks until I got some fillings that made me really sensitive to cold.

I ate sand at the beach. I liked the salt. NOT the same as pics though. Sort of like chewing on your fingernails doesn't make you a cannibal.

No, nor nothing that resembles it.

didn't know it had a name but yeah, i had it for years. used to buy ice by the bags at walmart. only ever mentioned the obsession to my dentist who told me how bad for my teeth it was. when my internist was checking other symptoms and got back a blood test she saw i was severely anemic. she asked if i chewed ice a lot. hell yeah.
