    I go through periods of time where I feel as if my body is not hydrating well in a general sense.

    Does anyone experience this, and what strategies if any do you have to combat it?

    Yes. For me it's a precursor to a crash.

    I've tried every imaginable electrolyte drink, homemade and commercial, and I think they do help a bit, but they're not enough. Weirdly, a bit of refined sugar + electrolytes + caffeine seems to work better. But still not enough. Only thing that really helps is all of the above + total cessation of activity.

    So for me it's another warning sign, better heeded than treated.

    Think my Dr suggested E-lyte for hydration, kind of fell of the wagon on taking it, have plenty in stock at home!

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    A preferred electrolyte cocktail of mine is a bit of water, sea salt and vegetable glycerin.

    It does seem to help with hydration and prolong the recurrence of symptoms better than your off the shelf sports drink.
