    i keep water beside me at night, which definitely helps in the morning. i messed up my septum a few years back and even though it was fixed (i just messed it up recently again however) i got used to breathing through my mouth during sleep. i feel like sandman in the morning from my sleep habit and a quick swig helps. but that'll dehydrate you pretty quickly just cause your mouth will get trying to salivate and your breathing is going against it. 8 hours of that does enough (on top of no water intake)


    summary: keep water by your side and drink it anytime you wake up

    mouth breathing is the cause. happens to me when i don't netti pot + nasal spray. allergy shots work best. see a doctor and get some nasal spray. that + breathright strips could help a lot.

    Do you have forced hot air heat? Do you get a lot of static electricity in your home in the winter? Do you have a humidifier? Your house may be drrrrry and sucking all the moisture out of your body especially when you sleep as stated above.

    Get a humidifier sized right for your house and run that thing all day and night. Drink water. Stay away from salty foods.

    We have forced hot air and pump over 4 gallons of water into the air in the winter when we have high pressure in the area. If there's a low moving through or cloud coverage we only have to pump about 2 gallons of water per day.

    I always feel a little dehydrated in the morning too... so I chug a pint of cold water every morning before I leave for work, and in 20 minutes I'm feeling back to normal. Not out of the fridge...just cold water from the tap. Then I have a 20oz water bottle on my desk that I make sure I finish by the end of the work day. Sometimes I end up chugging that, too... but I always make sure it's gone before I leave work.

    After that, the water fountain at the gym gets a good workout.

    After that.... a couple beers or glasses of wine with/after dinner, and the whole thing stars again the next day.

    I was hoping this is why you thought you were dehydrated. Piss is supposed to be dark in the morning. Your body makes piss more concentrated at night while you are sleeping so you don't have to wake up every 4 hours to use the bathroom.

    Problem solved, but you should stop drinking gatorade and eat healthy anyways!

    Ive read things that have said that the drinking gatorade has a negative net effect on dehydration. the claim is that your body uses more water to process the sugars in the gatorade than is contained in the drink itself. bottom line, if you are trying to hydrate your body plain water is the best thing for you.

    The 'electrolytes' in gatorade are sodium and chloride... Table salt mixed with water forms the ions Na+ and Ca-. It's still just salt though. Which is why you are right. The reason the makers put sugar and salt in the drink is obvious. You lose salt through sweat. You use glucose when you are active, and the sugars are quickly broken down into glucose and used (if you are active). You should still drink way more water than you should gatorade when you are working hard. If you are eating healthy you don't need gatorade anyways, your body will make it's own glucose from fat and you will replenish sodium levels by eating after you work out.

    If you are not active and you are drinking gatorade, you might as well drink a soda.

    Dark yellow, do you take a lot of vitamins? That could do it, too! You could always try one of these....

    No more gatoraids for me. What about from sweating too much during sleep ... I know I sweat a lot sleeping which is uber annoying
