Fastin can make you that sick?

Patient

Q: Hi, I was fasting (no eating no drinking) yesturday from 5am to 7:30pm and it was the first day I fasted. At around 4pm I started having a terrible migrain and some nausea. When it was time to break the fast at 7:30pm I couldn't eat or drink and when I tried to force myself I felt I was going to vomit. Later on in the the evening when I forced myself to drink some water, I was shiverring of cold, both my hands were tingling and I started vomitting and my stool was yellow. Since then I still can't eat and I only sip on water. Can fasting make me that sick? Should I stop fasting? or is it just a coincidence and I might have eaten something bad the night before? NB. PS. I've been feeting tired (fatigue) lately.
