Is it normal to get shoulder/arm pain from not eating for a while?

Is this a normal symptom of fasting? Today I tried fasting by not eating before evening because not eating a lot has worked against itching in the past (although first time I didn't eat a lot because I was actually sick that day, still it worked), and now it started to come back. But I did get aching pain while doing it that I'm very sure is caused by not eating for a while since I same connection has happened more than once

Is It Normal?

  • Perhaps the lymph nodes?

  • Honestly it sounds like you have food alergies. It would best be to diagnose them, as opposed to not eating, and finding pains likely ftom vitamin deficiencies.

  • Is it the Left shoulder and arm? That might indicate a significant circulation system or heart issue; and you should have that checked out ASAP (emergency room is appropriate for unusual left shoulder/arm feelings or pains).

    • I don't think it was specifically the left

  • I mean your body could also be scrounging around your muscles for extra protien.

  • Yes it is normal to get headaches, stomach aches, shoulder aches, and all sorts of aches and pains from not eating because it puts stress in the body.

    • Normal amount I guess? Should you avoid drinking water, or make sure you drink a lot in this case?

      • Drink alot. Your body normally gets alot of its water from food. Without eating food you need alot more water.

        • That's how I can skirt the whole drinking water aspect of my life. I tend to eat water heavy foods like salad, vegetables, fruit, and soup.
