Question: I have mycotoxicosis - toxic mold poisoning - and my body sweats so much at night that my sheets are literally soaked and have to be line dried every day. This did not used to happen, and is as if my body recognizes innately that these mycotoxins need to be excreted. My question is this: Since I have no idea how much fluid I am excreting through my skin every night, Is there a way for me to gauge whether I am getting close to or experiencing dehydration and consequent problems related to dehydration?

Brief Answer:
Signs of dehydration

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

It is important to keep yourself well hydrated when you are excessively sweating .

Here are some of the signs of dehydration

1. Increased thirst
2. Headache
3. Dry tongue

A more tedious way to measure hydration status is to measure weight when you are well hydrated and then again after you feel you are worn out, the difference is what is deficit

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me

Thank you Dr. XXXXXXX I only weigh 124 lbs. But I drink about 12-13 glasses of minerals water daily. And I still get thirsty and sometimes get headaches, perhaps from the excessive sweat excretion at night. What would you say is the largest quantity of water I could drink daily to combat potential or actual dehydration?

Brief Answer:
Needs evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for getting back. It is important that you undergo evaluation for increased thirst inspite of drinking 12 glasses of water. I dont think this is related to mold toxicity. You can drink about 3-4 litres of water per day to combat dehydration

I have had an EKG and CAT scan- my heart is fine and there’s no sinus infection or brain tumor. My white blood cell count is 3 times the norm and my cholesterol is twice the norm. The symptoms I am having have been going on since October 2008. My symptoms are: runny nose and congestion around the nasal cavaties of my nose, face numbness, tingling in left hand, some chest pain but it comes and goes, headaches, decreased attention span, extreme difficulty in concentrating, some dizziness, not able to focus eyes properly, feel like ears are stopped up and can’t hear good, excessive fatigue, sleeping too much or in short spans, feel panicky inside, extremely depressed, cry a lot, ongoing sore throat and chronic cough, sneezing, eyes burning, chest congestion, and I am doing things that are destructive like driving too fast and missing a lot of work. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and my family has a history of Bipolar, Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Could this be PTSD, Bipolar, or something medical like mold poisoning?
