stomach cramps after drinking water

I never used to drink water. I would drink soda, milk, or juice but not water. Anyway, over the past couple of years I've been drinking a little more water. Then a couple months ago, I decided I should be drinking more water. So I drink usually about 4 glasses a day, but many times it gives me stomach cramps! I usually drink water from the cooler at work or individual bottled water. But when I drink water, within a couple minutes I get really bad stomach cramps and have to run for the bathroom and have a very loose bowel movement.
Why does this happen?!

Have you tried drinking it at room temperature or even warm from the kettle.
I rarely drink plain water. My dr told me as long as I drink adequate fluids it doesn't matter what it is.
I drink mainly herbal-tea, ordinary tea and milk, I just don't like cold drinks,
Probably due to the climate I live in. Solofelix.

Yeah, I don't like really cold water, so I usually add hot water to it so it's more room-temperature, but not warm.

Re: stomach cramps after drinking water

usually cold water will cause that reaction in some folks. I drink 64 oz of water at work, plus whatever i drink with meals etc. 4 glasses isn't alot of fluids for the entire day.

My doctor said that water is the best thing for you. especially if you are watching sodium or calories. I enjoy ice cold water, but it doens't affect me like it does you...

I'm getting there. Four glasses of water a day plus whatever I drink with my meals is a lot for me, since I used to drink fluids with my meals ONLY and maybe a coffee in between.
