Quick Tip| Dehydration, Headaches, and Gatorade

Headache

I’ve been getting frequent headaches for about as long as I can remember. I complain about them frequently but recently my fiance decided to do a little research on it. He found out that headaches can be a symptom of dehydration. It sounded all to simple as he told me that I don’t drink enough water. But I continued to listen to him.

Through his research he also found out that if you drink Gatorade when the symptoms first appear it will get rid of or prevent the headache. Since Gatorade is so cheap I figured I would give it a try. It didn’t take long before I felt the onset of a headache coming. I grabbed my handy dandy Gatorade bottle and chugged nearly all of it.

So I would say around 10-20 minutes later I was expecting to have a full blown headache. Not so much. He was right, I’m not drinking enough water and it is either triggering or causing my headaches. I tested his theory out nearly 20 times and it’s only failed to stop the headache once.

I’m working on increasing the amount of water I drink but Gatorade is now my go to drink when I’m getting a headache. It surely beats taking OTC medicine for it.

I’m not a Doctor so this blog shouldn’t be taken as medical advice. I’m just a girl with a headache who found something that worked for her. I hope it works for you as well.
