POIS caused dehydration? And water won?t help
« on: June 07, 2020, 05:15:38 AM »
Hi

I noticed many of my POIS symptoms are just signs of dehydration: dry skins, dry mouth, low fever, sagging face, sunken skin, always thirsty. These can last for months. And no matter how much water I drink, I still feel dehydrated.

So maybe POIS somehow prevent our body from absorbing enough water?

What do you think? If anyone found way to hydrated the body during POIS please share.


Thanks

At POTS fora they use gatorade for dehydration. It isn't POIS but sharing anyway. I'm only thirsty when I'm transitioning out of POIS. Perhaps something going on with osmotic regulation.

I'm the opposite. I can only remember being thirsty once maybe in the last month or two. I just have water to help wash the food down and that's it.

This sentence from Wikipedia sounds interesting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirst
"Thirst quenching varies among animal species, with dogs, camels, sheep, goats, and deer replacing fluid deficits quickly when water is available, whereas humans and horses may need hours to restore fluid balance."

I also feel quite thirsty, but that's maybe because it's my learned(?) way of trying to get the day-after headache away. (Also craving cola and coffee).

Isn't thirst sometimes also the craving for some minerals? The pages about ketogenic diet (which i'm not doing) always say if you go keto, you will pee a lot of minerals out and feel thirsty.

Maybe worth to experiment with creatine which puts water in your muscles.

Or maybe thirst is just the body's way of trying to dilute something?

?The onset of Scombroid poisoning is typically from 10 min to 1 h following consumption of poisonous fish. The symptoms are variable and include peppery or metallic taste, oral numbness, headache, dizziness, palpitations, rapid and weak pulse (low blood pressure), difficulty in swallowing, and thirst.'
