Bad Dehydration And Headaches When Waking Up
Hi all.

Lately... for the last week or so... every time I wake up I feel super thirsty and my urine stings and I have a really bad headache.

I know this is all symptoms of dehydration. But I have started having a large mug of water before I go to bed but I still wake up dehydrated and with a really bad headache.

Is it because I'm not drinking much during the day?

Thanks.

ETA: Wow my head really hurts right now Undecided

It used to be easy to drink plenty of fluids but I drank a lot of flavored water that I loved. I probably was more likely to drink too much. I never ever had headaches and my family often did and i must have drank like 20 times a day.

But I live by myself now and I can't afford to buy anything to drink so I just drink tap water which tastes fucking disgusting to me. So I have to remind myself to drink and it's like several times in the morning when I wake up feeling super dehydrated with a bad headache... once more a few hours later and then once before bed.

I used to wake up extremely thirsty and with headaches but all symptoms would go away after my morning cup of coffee. I mentioned it to my doctor and long story short the symptoms were due to sleep apnea.

IMFred has the best advice - see a doctorSmile

Thanks guys. Yeah I will. Smile

I just hope they take me seriously. The GP often dismisses stuff as nothing to worry about in my experience Undecided

Yeah see a doctor. Have your sugar levels and maybe your thyroid checked.

I would see a doctor, but also try sleeping with your upper half elevated (wedge pillow or prop yourself up).
If you wake w/ less headaches, this could be a sign of sleep apnea.

Listen to the Loon. Diabetics know that unexplained thirst could be a sign of high blood sugar. You look too skinny and young to be at high risk of Type 2 but get lab work to make sure. Also check for any empty liquor bottles lying around that you don't know where they came from. Sleep drinking is real I tell you, real.

If your tap water tastes bad, try investing in a Britta filter jug. Keep it full and in the refrigerator. They really work.

Pissing razor blades could also be a sign of a UTI (urinary tract infection).

In the meantime get some Pedialyte and drink some before bed. I find that it helps whenever I have a dry mouth. It ought to help with your electrolytes.
