I have high blood pressure (BP). My doctor recently added a second BP medication. I began having frequent headaches, feeling lightheaded. Last week my husband and I went on a road trip for a week to visit our daughter. My usual intake of fluids was greatly reduced. On our trip home, I began having pain in my upper left side and back, feeling nauseated and dizzy. My urine was darker than usual. I realized I was very dehydrated. As soon as I finished my second bottle of water, my pain began to diminish. It has been two days, my urine is almost clear, dizziness gone, and pain barely noticeable. I am going to my doctor on Monday to be evaluated. Hoping I didn't do any permanent damage. Dehydration is serious, especially if you are on medications that increase your susceptibility. Don't ignore the warning signs! Drink plenty of fluids daily!.

I got sick from eating three donuts, and since then, that was two days, I've been doing nothing but getting sicker. Yesterday I was too nauseous to eat. Today I'm dehydrated. I have some of the mild symptoms, but I have some of the severe as well. I'm really lethargic right now..
