Chest pain, weight loss, on water fasting. Is the pain due to dehydration?
Thanks for posting your query.
You are doing a water fasting for last 7 days. It depends on your body composition that for how long can you sustain this. Initially for some days the body uses body fat for energy and later on proteins break down. The changes caused by such fasting include electrolyte imbalances, thinning hair, lanugo, cardiac arrhythmia and renal failure.
Insufficient fluid intake might cause electrolyte disturbances and renal failure.The left sided chest pains may be related to cardiac arrhythmias due to electrolyte disturbances.
You need to consult your cardiologist for ECG and further investigations that are required to detect the problem.
Hope this answers your query.I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
