Yes: It can. Dehydration can cause fatigue, headaches, stomach aches nausea, weakness, if getting hydrated resolves it then that is the answer. If not, consult with your doc if it is ongoing and a problem for you.

Dehydration: Yes! it's a vicious cycle! nausea forbids you from drinking and for dehydration, you need to drink. Break the cycle by drinking little sips of oral electrolyte solution slowly ( say 2-3 oz in 60-90 min). Other symptoms-- light headedness, dry mouth, decreased urine output, etc, etc.

A female asked:

What are symptoms or dehydration?? Are headaches and nausea symptoms?

Both can happen: Headache and nausea, sometimes experienced as dizziness, can happen with dehydration. Dizziness may be more pronounced when standing up. Other symptoms include dry or sticky mouth, thirst, and decreased or dark urine. It can be tricky to get rehydrated if you are nauseated. Try sipping on fluids rather than gulping. If your symptoms do not improve with hydration, notify your doctor.

Dehydration: is never good. Heat/sweat can cause dehydration. Make sure to re-hydrate by sipping water during times of heat. Peace and good health.

Hard to say: Could be lots of stuff. Are you running a fever? You could have an infection. Do you urinate very frequently? Could be a sign of diabetes. If it is happening for more than a night or 2 your should speak to your doctor and get checked out.
