5 Signs You May Be Dehydrated

Working out hard under the hot sun? Watch for these warning signs that your body’s too low on H20.

(In other words, when you’re dehydrated, your heart's hard at work maintaining your blood pressure.) If you’re extremely dehydrated and your heart really gets going (say, above 100 beats per minute), you may experience palpitations, which are essentially hiccups in your heart’s rhythm.
