The 7 Unusual Signs of Dehydration

Dehydration often sneaks up on you when you don't notice your body's early warning signs. Thirst is the most common and obvious sign of dehydration, but you might already be dehydrated when you feel thirsty. 

Below are seven dehydration signs and symptoms you shouldn't ignore.

  1. Having bad breath is a possible sign of dehydration - We often associate bad breath with poor dental hygiene. However, it can also be a warning sign of dehydration. When our bodies are dehydrated, our saliva production decreases. As a result, bacteria can build up, which can cause bad breath. Dehydration can also cause our bodies to produce less oxygen, leading to bad breath. 
  2. Skin That Is Dry or Flushed Could Be a Sign of Dehydration - One of the first signs of dehydration is often a change in the skin. The skin may become dry, flush, or both. When you don't drink enough fluids, your body will start to pull water from the skin, leading to dryness. In addition, blood flow to the skin decreases, leading to a flushed appearance. If you are experiencing these changes in your skin, it is essential to increase your fluid intake and see a doctor if the symptoms persist.
  3. The Most Common Cause of Muscle Cramps Is Dehydration - There's nothing worse than a muscle cramp. You mind your own business the next minute, and the next, you're writhing in pain. Most people reach for a glass of water when they get a cramp, but did you know that muscle cramps occur primarily by dehydration? Heat illness can result from dehydration and cause cramping. So, if you're out in the heat, drink plenty of water. And if you do get a cramp, drink even more water and try to cool down.
  4. The symptoms of heat illness are fever and chills, both caused by dehydration - Fever and chills are symptoms of heat illness, which is a condition caused by dehydration. When the body cannot regulate its temperature, it can lead to serious health problems. Heat illness is a severe medical emergency. Symptoms of heat illness include fever, chills, headaches, nausea, and vomiting. 
  5.  If you're craving sweets, you may just be thirsty - We've all been there before. Whether you're at work, stuck in traffic, or in the middle of a movie theatre when suddenly you crave something sweet. You might even feel weak or shaky. You tell yourself you're just hungry, but that craving doesn't go away no matter how much you eat. It might even get worse. What's going on? Chances are, you're not hungry at all. You're just thirsty. 
  6. Drinking More Water Can Prevent Headaches - If you are often experiencing headaches, then you're not drinking enough water. Dehydration can cause your body to become dehydrated, leading to headaches. To avoid this, drink plenty of water throughout the day. If you have difficulty drinking enough water, try carrying a water bottle with you or setting reminders on your phone.
  7. Dehydration and Back Pain - Dehydration is a common cause of back pain. When the body is dehydrated, the discs in the spine can become dry and hard, leading to pain. Drinking plenty of water will prevent back pain.
