Would you have ever thought such a thing as too much water was possible?
Yes, it is actually more than possible! We’ve grown accustomed to everyone telling us to drink water since it’s one of the things that most people forget to do on a daily basis. However, this is not something that we should start abusing. Just as dehydration can cause you a significant number of health problems, the same can happen if you’re overhydrated, and you end up ingesting way too many liquids, in particular water.
One may think that there’s no harm done in drinking whenever they feel like it, but doing this will not only create a habit of drinking way too much water compared to the recommended amount your body needs, but it can come with a lot of other side effects that will make you feel bad. However, recognizing those symptoms can be quite hard to do by yourself, so we’ve gathered some of the most common ones here so you can see for yourself if the reason you’re not feeling well is due to how much water you’re drinking!
Let us know if you recognize any of these symptoms of overhydration in yourself!
