Proper hydration is SO under valued these days. Electrolytes mean nothing without the fluid to make them work. Your blood is also thicker and your heart has to work harder to circulate it.
Um..yeah..I now know how important and exactly how much you need to be properly hydrated. Having to be rushed to the hospital at 4:30 in the a/m b/c you're passing out and completely disoriented wasn't my idea of a good time. After doing every test possible, pumping 4 bags of saline into me...and a nice bill from my insurance company..I now drink poo tons of water all day every day...and surprisingly, the heart palpitations that I used to have..are now gone.
