Can dehydration cause headaches?
- By Team TDO
Yes. Dehydration may lead to headache. Water is very important for our body. That is why human body contains a lot of water content. About 75 % of our lean muscle tissue is water. Blood is 95 % water while body fat is 14 % water and bones are 22 % water. When we drink less of water we get dehydrated and our body show symptoms such as headache to show the lack of water. When we bend our head or move head often the pain increases. Actually the lack of water affects the supply of blood and oxygen and this is what our body shows as dehydration headache.
