  • When you are thirsty, that's the body's way of saying you are dehydrated.

  • Probably just your body telling you to kick it into gear, but mention it to your doctor. Extreme thirst can be a symptom of some other things, and it's best to rule those out right away. :)

  • And you are only peeing because 1) how much you are drinking 2) because you're bladder is being squished
