Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
What you are experiencing may be a result of electrolyte imbalance in your system
I know that I was pretty dehydrated last week. I have been trying to increase fluids but haven't focused on Gatorade or anything like that.
My biggest concern was that this would be lymph node related but I have no swelling in any of the areas.
Gatorade may help, but if it lasts for another week, I would recommend you have your electrolytes checked. I don't think it has anything to do with lymph nodes
Ok. I was at my family doc this past week for a physical, vaccinations, and some foot pain but I have been excessively stressed at work and it has led to some weight loss and minimal fluid intake. He did bloodwork and urinalysis and everything came back ok except he described the urinalysis as looking 'dried out' maybe this fits with what you are suggesting?
This shows that you need to drink more fluids, and try to make sure they have enough sugar and other nutrients in it, not just water
Wow I guess I never realized that electrolytes could lead to physical pain.
would that have shown up on a CBC or is that something that is specific?
No, it will show up on a complete metabolic profile, not a CBC
ok well this has been extremely helpful. I greatly appreciate your time. Thanks.
