Question: I've started drinking a lot of water with a squeeze of lemon. My stool has turned loose, frequent, and clay-colored. My stomach hurts a lot (gas). Is something wrong with me? I thought water was good for you.

Brief Answer:
Water is Definitely good for you

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your question on HealthcareMagic,

I do understand your pain and discomforts

As per your history is concerned, first I want to clarify that water and lemon has no role in your loose motion at all. Please get a stool routine microscopy and culture analysis done to confirm whether it is caused by bacterial infection or parasite manifestation. So, as per investigation reports management and medications will be advised accordingly.

Secondly, do check with your doctor once, as your doctor will instruct you to take steps to replace the fluids and electrolytes lost during diarrhea.

If drinking liquids upsetting your stomach or causing diarrhea, your doctor may recommend getting fluids through intra-venous routes, as proper hydration is a must during ongoing fluid and electrolyte loss due to diarrhea.

Disruption of your body's fluid and electrolyte levels can create an electrolyte imbalance that can be serious. So, additionally, you can help maintain your electrolyte levels by drinking lot of fruit juices, soups and broths etc..


Hope this helps

Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards
