Default Migrane, If it makes you feel any better...

I spent about 4 hours in the ER today, after a nice little ride in an ambulance. I had a doctor's appointment today and passed out in the doctor's chair. Come to find out, I was severly dehydrated. I was drinking 5-7 glasses of water and gatorade a day, I guess in the heat that wasn't enough. The nurse's put 3 tubes of liquids in my system, and now I'm back to normal.

Got a glass of gatorade besides my bed and resting up.

They do. Gatorade really does work. But not the way you think.

It helps hydrates you. It does so by adding electrolytes and sodium which makes you more thirsty which in turn leads you to drink more. THe more you drink the more you hydrate yourself. Technically its doing its job to get you to drink more!!!

Man I remember whenever we did training in the Mojave desert we would always have heat casulties and non stop medivacs. Life flight would have to fly into the mountain areas to get the boots who weren't hydrating properly. But that is after wearing 70+ lbs of gear and training in the desert.

And the water we drank we called "Fire water", cause that sh!t was hot as f***

Thanks for the kind words. Been doing 2 glasses of water, 2 glasses of Gatorade and rotating that throughout the afternoon. I feel a lot better. Its scary a hell when the medic calls the fire truck and says "Blood Pressure 45, Pulse 30 blast us through".
