    it seems i am going to er lately with bad dehydration
    and kidney infections
    and i drink all the time, you know
    .. water and cokes and that stuff,
    ha ha!!
    but i cant take in as much as i seem to loose.
    is this part of the fibro,
    or is it just me?

    Dehydration is so part of FM!

    As i had only fluids in preparation for surgery, the hunger made me drink quite a bit before the big day. Despite this I was so dehydrated the nurse was chocked!

    I remember weighing myself late in the evening before going to bed (had to stop drinking 10 PM), and then in the morning around 7AM- i had lost 6 1/2 punds of fluid!!!

    Dr Cheney speaks about this issue with our DD, can't remember which article.

    i have all of that and abdominal pain and all, but when i go to er they dont adress the abdominal pain hardly and just give me fluids and take blood,
    last time they said my white count was fine
    but i dint believe it cause i have too much going on heath wise..
    . man, i am so very sorry for you both.
    and also about diet pepsi-
    i drink diet cokes, does that add to pain?
    how can i get them to help me?
    this cannot be normal dehydrating all the time..
    . i also have crohns and hep c
    and other stuff.and lots of my bowels are gone.
    plus they only gave me a bag and almost a half of fluid!!!! thats nothing! and i am at a country hosp- nt like its packed or anything...

    I can tell that i am normally dehydrated because of my skin ans lips.
    Will this cause Kidney pain?

    I think dehydration is key in this DD. My body does not rehydrate correctly and I drink tons of water:) I think when someone gets this piece of the puzzle figured out we will be close to a cure for this DD.
    Take care,
