Hello, my last fasting attempt threw me some surprises. On the second day, my entire mouth became very VERY sore! It hurt even to drink and swallow water! Especially in the soft spots right behind my teeth/at the base of my tongue.
I ended up breaking my fast on a soft peach, and couldn't even eat it, I was in so much agony. I now realize I should have soldiered through this, since obviously my body was doing some serious house cleaning.
Strange! Were the acrid toxins to blame for the pain? Any advice for next time? I just began a fast today at 7pm 8/17/08 and I am wondering if I'll have the same symptoms once things get rolling.
