Dude. That sounds serious. You need to take care of yourself first and foremost, so seriously consider stopping the fast and maybe even calling your doctor.

I genuinely appreciate your concern. I just signed on to throw an edit... I fast often enough that I was fairly certain this wasn't related, but just laid low long enough to verify. I also get migraines often enough that it reinforced my hunch that it was indeed that - and not a blood sugar thing.

Sure enough - I powered through, and thankfully feeling much better. It's weird. I'm still not hungry... And despite the tiny lingering "after-headache" I feel amazing... the way I normally feel during fasting. SO yay! still no calories... and feeling amazing.

But seriously - I am very thankful for your concern and nudge to do the right thing. I should have known better than to post whilst delirious in migraineland.

Glad you're feeling better already. Good luck with the fast, and of course, be careful. :)
