Headaches can be a real pain and sometimes, dehydration could be a contributing factor to headache. Dehydration occurs when your body is not properly hydrated and it can lead to various symptoms which can include headache. The water we lose through urination and sweat is replaced by the water we gain through drinking and eating through the day but sometimes, our body lose more fluid than we take in which can cause dehydration.

A few signs to look out for dehydration can include: Throbbing pain, dry mouth and thirst, fatigue, difficulty in concentration, among others.

How to treat a dehydration headache:

  • Drink water: Drinking enough water is the most important step to treat dehydration headache. Drink plenty of water to restore hydration level.
  • Electrolyte balance: Electrolytes are vital minerals that we lose through sweat, like salt and potassium. Try drinking beverages with electrolyte as it could also help with dehydration.
  • Avoid triggers: Certain triggers like caffeine, alcohol and sugary drinks can worsen dehydration headache. Try to avoid these substances until you’re fully hydrated.
  • Take OTC pain relievers: Taking medicine such as Sudrex headache and fever could help manage the problem in the long run but ensure enough water is taken.
  • Rest: On a hot day, if you experience a dehydration headache, locate a cool, shaded area to rest and drink water until you feel well enough to resume exercise or other activities.
