How much water do you drink in a day? None? Do you get close to the recommended amount? Do you even know the recommended amount?

Seems many people are suffering the symptoms of dehydration – headaches, muscle cramps, and dizziness – and don’t even know it. And when they feel those symptoms, instead of reaching for water, they reach for over-the-counter pain relievers. The reason most people don’t drink enough water? According to the survey, they say they forget. (SWNS).
