Six Symptoms That Might Just Be Signs You’re Dehydrated

The next time you have a headache, you might not need Advil.  Or, go ahead and take it . . . but chase it with a FULL glass of water.


A new poll looked at what we normally do to deal with symptoms that might just be signs you’re dehydrated.  Here are six of them, and what we normally do . . .


 1.  Headaches.  43% said they usually just take a painkiller.  Only 1 in 6 drink water.

 2.  Feeling dizzy.  45% lie down . . . 20% close their eyes . . . and water is third at 18%.

  3.  Constantly feeling tired.  Lying down and napping are the most common ways we deal with it.  Only 15% hydrate.

  4.  Dry mouth.  With that one, drinking water IS the #1 thing we do . . . because duh.

  5.  Constipation.  Water is #1 again, but only half do it.  Taking meds is next at 14%.

  6.  Indigestion.  42% said they drink water.  19% usually take medication.

  The poll also found the average person thinks they only need to add one extra, eight-ounce glass of water a day to their diet.  But they really need at least FOUR more glasses.  And the top reason we don’t drink more water is . . . we forget to.  (Yahoo)
