I think drinking water may have helped earlier in my experience, but perhaps don't drink TONS of water. I recently had to limit my water intake because I was drinking so much plain cool water that despite intaking a lot of salt, my sodium was low, and most of my other blood levels were low, which was causing brief diabetes insipidus. My doctor has instructed me to not intake so much water a day. Actually, since I stopped drinking so much water, my hive issues (around off and on for months) seem much better. Apparently my water versus salt and glucouse and electrolytes were so far off that everything in my body was thrown off.
I have chronic urticaria and never thought that drinking tons of water will help. But I don't think drinking too much water is good for the body... it could overload the cells or something. Did you tell your doctor about the drinking?
Well, some people claim that drinking tons of water can cure any disease or ailment. But I don't buy into that.
Be cautious, because drinking too much water can kill you. Alexander the Great lost many of his soldiers when he marched to his India campaign...after the hard crossing of a desert, his soldiers suddenly came upon a river. He could not stop them from stampeeding forward and drinking as much as they could at once. Overhydration is real.
Hi... I was watching the news tonight and there was this news about overdrinking. There's this guy that drank too much water (4500ml in just 2 hours?...can't remember the measurement but the number is right) and he ended up in the hospital for 10 days! Apparently his electrolytes, etc were all messed up and they call it 'water-poisoning'. It can cause a person to go into a coma and even death. Drinking is important but we must also watch what we drink.
For people who exercise alot and just drink plain water... their body might not have enough of the electrolytes which were lost.
