    I am having a lot of trouble with dehydration, cotton mout even, has anyone else had this trouble? Does anyone know why or where it comes from AND even better, what can I do about it? Please, I would so much appreciate some help with this, just one more thing to add to this wonderful delima of CFS-FIBRO thing. Thanks so much, Hugs..................Pam2

    Are you drinking at least half your body weight in OUNCES of water a day? If not, please start now. Also all sodas, tea, coffee with caffeine cause dehydration.

    You will also need salt in your body, take a quarter teaspoon of salt through out the day too.

    Shalom, Shirl

    but I do keep increasing my water and salt. I find I need to keep water with me at all times and just keep drinking smaller amounts but at very regular intervals. Hasn't solved the problem but it helps. The more I need water the more it just seems to pass through me, but increasing my salt as the temp goes up slows it down a bit.

    Worst thing for me was doing a 24 hour saliva test 2 days ago, boy was I glad I was alone at the time, it was a nightmare. Rather have a needle any day.

    I will be watching this post with interest hoping someone comes up with other ideas.

    Cheers

    I did that one about a year ago for hormone testing and the spitting was enough to make me gag. I just can't spit very well!

    I was so wondering if this was something weird but as always sounds like it is just another symptom,eh? I don't take anti depressants and I do drink a lot of water, but hadn't tried the salt so will give it a try! Thanks so much.....HUGS to everyone, Pam
