    There are several symptoms that accompany dehydration. In addition to dark urine, symptoms include dry or sticky mouth, lethargy, coma (with severe cases), little to no amount of urine, the absence of tears, sunken eyes, a sunken fontanelle in cases with infants (the soft spot on top of the head), vomiting, and diarrhea. Some may also feel that they cannot keep food down. Low blood pressure, rapid heart rate, and shock are also signs of dehydration.

    Some of the most common symptoms of mild to moderate dehydration include dry mouth, tiredness, and dizziness. In more extreme cases, if you find you’re drinking a lot of fluids and still not going to the bathroom regularly, you could be dehydrated. 

    It’s important to stay hydrated and WebMD has a cool article that shows ways other than drinking water to get hydrated. Eating fruit can help hydrate you. Even hamburgers or chicken breast are a good alternative to water (in moderation).
