Everyone who consumes a sufficient amount of water gets bloated in this fashion. That's natural and normal.quote:I am puzzled at how when I drink water, I get more bloated
Edema has nothing to do with this topic.quote:What is Edema?? Edema (BE: oedema, formerly known as dropsy) is swelling of any organ or tissue due to accumulation of excess fluid. Edema has many root causes, but its common mechanism is accumulation of fluid into the tissues.

There is a distinction between functional bloating and distension. I think volatile is describing distension and not bloating. True?quote:For bloating --- the medical term as it designate as an GI problem-- you must suffer from suffocation and pressure inside the abdomen.

If this is reliably reproducible, you should ask your doctor about having a fluoroscope done while you are drinking water. It may give some hint as to what's going on.quote:Is there any explanation as to why water of all things makes me bloated?
Nobody has to drink water per se.If I understand correctly, only water causes this not any other liquid. True? (Of course, most every liquid contains water, which make that situation puzzling.)quote:I NEED TO DRINK WATER

Did you find a good solution? I find when I get bloated easily that if I take soluble fiber for a couple days or so that I feel much better and don't notice it any more.

I don't know but I think this person's issue may have been drinking *cold* water. I notice I can get pretty severe and sudden ab pain when I drink really cold water.

Drinking or eating anything will trigger muscle contractions in the intestines and stomach. It's like a switch that gets turned on in the stomach (and perhaps just all by the brain itself). The stomach sends a signal to the brain when there's more stuff in the stomach. The brain in turn sends signals to begin bowel movement and various secretions in the intestines and stomach. What you're likely experiencing is this process, and the bloating may be due to the resulting increase in gas from bacteria that begin to multiply when they shift around and get exposed to various bodily fluids. Or it's due to the electrical activity (spasms) produced by the nervous system during this process.
That's what I suspect anyway.

Hi this is my first post and I plan to make a new post around this topic. My observation is that IBS, etc sufferers are adding to many fluids to their diets in the forms of teas, sodas, or just plain water. My good theory (as is probably already suspect) is that gut disorders have a microbiological foundation of bacteria, yeasts, and protozoa. Most of which little is known about because the species cannot be cultivated on any lab media and dishes. I have experience when it comes to observing how all this flora competes and grows as it is essential in my line of work (running a mushroom farm).
Compost/hay that gets too wet or is too wet at harvest will heat up with microbes to the point of catching fire. A wooden log that sits in warm water will rot away quickly. Oversaturation of water creates extreme microbial action, and this excess action is what tears at our guts and causes progressively worse microbial environments that eventually favor the bacterias that cause cysts/chrone's/etc. Look for my new post on this topic.
