Wish I felt that way. I am supposed to drink half my pound weight in ounces but can't seem to get enough water down each day.

I don't feel extra thirsty but I know I should drink more water in the winter because my skin gets painfully dry.

I don't get that tbirsty in the winter time, but I live in Southern Louisiana. We have so much humidity down here that even in the winter I don't get that thirsty.

I always have a bottle of water or crystal light close at hand. I drink tons of fluids all day and night

I keep a jug of water flavored with slices of oranges or tangerines in the frig at all times I drink about a gallon a day then fill it again for the next day. I drink coffee in the morning and water the rest of the day

I always have something to drink beside me. I drink lots of water, 2 cups of decaf coffee in the morning, and alot of decaf, unsweetened tea the rest of the time. I am not a big fan of soda, but if I am low or shaky I drink a little regular cherry coke. and it makes it all better. But I do not notice between seasons I just drink all the time.

This for sure happens to me! It seems that winter is the worst time. I just figure it is the warm dry air. I did put humidifers in several of the rooms where I spend the most time. I use the cool mist kind and they really help. I told my doctor about the problem and he wrote a prescription for me. My insurance paid for at least half of the machine price. You never know what your insurance will pay unless you ask!

That is for sure. I have gotten all kinds of things for my back that I never knew I would. I got a heating pad that warm water runs through that I have constatntly on when I am sitting. I have a Tens unit that gives my back little electric pulses to relieve the pain. I do not use that alot because of all the wires and sticky pads but insurance paid for both of these 100%. You never know unless the Doctor asks the insurance company.

It is not uncommon to be extra thirsty in the winter; the heat being on alone can dry you and your body,and therefore causing dehydration. and the heat is on wherever you go, the car, the stores, the work places, etc. Just be careful and drink healthy, and you will be all good!;-.)
