Example:
Demna’het’xe mi’aela sijiv’jet’mi ly’het ekushu’tan.
My stomach hurts in this third day of fasting.

This is a strange term. While it is similar to the word tore’tan for pain, this term has a positive connotation. Sometimes, pain is indeed something positive. Like when your body hurts after excercising, but you are happy that you did it. Or when it is part of an initialtion ritual. The hunger when fasting is similar to physical pain (at least it was when I fasted for a week pretty much just for the heck of it) thus it uses the same term.

The verb means to experience this sensation, while the adjective is the equivalent to painful or hungry during a time of fasting.
