From this study (2 days ago):
causes acute thirst and dehydration symptoms that I treat with water and ice between water intake. I have had a bout with a bulging disc in the past but this was quite different. I wasn't having any of these symptoms. I was very really good except I was having this drainage to my throat and ears. When I would cough, it was mostly nonproductive so that is why I took two Musinex DM tabs before bed with a full glass of water followed by orange juice and bread stick. Two hours before I had taken two vitamins C tabs for the first time in a month. After taking the pills and falling asleep, I woke with a back ache. I just thought I needed to increase my water, so I did. When I attempted to get up for the restroom from all the water, I was in acute back pain and it became such a struggle that I was using the furniture for support. No pain down the leg or foot. Such hard to turn over, stand up, or walk! It has been 10 hours and I am still having symptoms but not as severe, If I fall asleep and don't continue the water, the symptoms return.
