  • You pass very little urine or none at all after a few hours of treatment, you feel dizzy or faint, you have a fast heartbeat, your skin looks wrinkled or your mouth feels very dry, or you lose several pounds in a few days.

  • Let's not let it get that severe. If you pinch your thin skin on your hand and it stays!?? Drink enough! Have Gatorade Etc.. Don't let yourself get run down! You wouldn't let your car run out of fluids. Don't do it to your body! Hope you feel Well soon! If its urgent. Go into the ER ! Don't Hesitate! Get in! You're worth it!
