Cool sensation on head after water. Have dehydration?

Hi, I feel this cool sensation on the top of my head after I drink some water...sometimes I feel a little weird too along with sort of out of it. I hardly feel thirsty, it doesn t matter what activity I m doing, I could go a day or two without drinking anything. I simply forget...I know I might have some dehydration issues, but why do I feel the cool sensation on my head after I do drink water? I also sometimes feel the same sensation in my back outer rib area, I guess where my kidneys are. Anyway, I appreciate any insight into what s going on...

Thanks for the query

It is normal to have such feelings of coolness after or while drinking water. It is because the water is cooler than your body temperature. Don't worry about it

I strongly advice you to drink Atleast 6 glasses of water everyday, dehydration is unhealthy and leads to lots of health issues like kidney stones, urinary tract infections and acute kidney injury

I hope I was of help
