The Fast was fine... I think for most people ( NOT EVERYONE) the fast is the easiest part of the day.. It's everything else that's hard.

Woke up with a terrible splitting headache that stayed around all day until I popped a few tylenols as soon as I made havdala.  Not my easiest yom kippur to say the least.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Man, that's rough.  Anyone here ever try those time released meds for the fast?

Sorry to hear. I often have the same thing of fast days, so I can sympathize.  Hopefully it'll be a Kapparah and the last year it'll happen.

Mine was surprisingly easy. -even though I was feeling pretty crappy most of the day.

I've found that not drinking any caffeine for a day or two before the fast really helps.

From 5pm onwards a gradually worsening headache, and at oossfasten (after maariv about 8:05), I had such migraine, that I just manage to drink 2 cups of water, walked home like a drunk, had some paracetamol and slept for 2 hours straight, after which I felt good.

I usually try to make neila my climax in concentration etc, but didn't work this year...
