    yep. especially if this is your first time. you will feel tired and sluggish. irritable, weak, and moody. you'll get headaches, cramps, and experience "brain fog". your breath and urine will smell like fruit. most people say they get a metallic taste in their mouth (i never experienced this as i have never eaten metal before so i don't know what it tastes like).
