    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I get spells of fatigue which lasts for several days but all tests are clear. I am declared to be Well. I can be energetic one day and energy-less the next. I have CKD. I drink 2 litres a day. Could I still be getting dehydrated.

    How are your blood pressures doing on the tired days versus the not-tired days? What are blood test numbers looking like recently?

    Dehydration can definitely cause fatigue, but I'd be reluctant to pin it on that without checking out everything else.

    You might carefully try increasing water intake for a few days to see what happens, but don't get too drastic with it too fast: you can seriously upset the body's electrolyte balance with big overdoses of water. And that could have serious side effects.
