Hydration and the DC condition

I'm a stupid greenhorn to this condition *and* this forum.

I'm sure this subject has been discussed. I have a need to rant anyway :)

I know when my body is a bit dehydrated. I tend to get a SEVERE contracture in (for whatever reason) my right foot. All the tendons suddenly contract forcefully and the pain is excruciating (the tendons pull the toes inward). It often happens at night while I'm in a deep sleep. It's so painful that I'll leap out of bed and start strecting the tendons to release the pain. This happens when I know I haven't been drinking enough water (or non-diuretic fluids). It's part of dehydration.

Once my body is rehydrated properly, I have no sudden foot contractures and my DC on my left pinky is *more* manageable (meaning more mobility).

I guess I'm just wondering if there is a proven link btween DC management and hydration.

I guess I may have already answered my inquiry.

Re: Hydration and the DC condition

May be you are experiencing cramps rather than Dupuytren's contracture? Dupuytren's contracture is a slow but then permanent process. If you have cramps you might take Magnesium, it helps me.

A hydration of the skin nevertheless might foster Dupuytren's. Obviously the disease starts in the sub-skin tissue. If that is stressed (whatever that means) it might faciliate the start of Dupuytren's tumors. Who knows.
