You not only feel tired and fatigued but can also find difficulty in concentrating on a task when you are dehydrated. Abstain from consuming stimulants like coffee if you have chronic fatigue issues. Stimulants, in turn, act as diuretics and make you pee multiple times leading to further loss of water.

6. Muscle Soreness And Cramps

Drink plenty of liquids every day. The amount depends on what you eat, your sex, your level of activity, the weather, your health, your age and medications you take. Fluids help your muscles contract and relax and keep muscle cells hydrated and less irritable. During activity, replenish fluids at regular intervals, and continue drinking water or other fluids after you're finished.

7. Increased Heart Rate And Shock

Dehydration causes strain on your heart. The amount of blood circulating through your body, or blood volume, decreases when you are dehydrated. To compensate, your heart beats faster, increasing your heart rate and causing you to feel palpitations. Also your blood retains more sodium, making it tougher for it to circulate through your body.

Your heart is constantly working, pumping about 2,000 gallons of blood a day. By staying hydrated – i.e. drinking more water than you are losing – you are helping your heart do its job. A hydrated heart is able to pump blood more easily, allowing the muscles in your body to work even better.

8. Headache

Dehydration may trigger headaches or migraines in some people. In fact, drinking water provided headache relief within 30 minutes for 22 out of 34 people, while 11 other participants found relief within three hours. Keep in mind that there are many different types of headaches and they are not all caused by a lack of hydration. Nevertheless, a headache may be a sign that your body needs more water.
