i was wondering is this scientifically possible...i now havent had D for over a month, i would get it atleast once a week, i have nearly had it twice but it decided to just be frequent instead and believe me i got the pain just not the D and i am positive this is due to water, before new years i decided to drink atleast 8 glasses of water a day and have pretty much stuck to it, and while it has helped my C on occasions (i get alternate C and D) i have found that even if i am C and the D feels like it wants to come if i just carry on drinking water even when im in oain the D never comes. for example today i havent had much water, maybe 3 glasses and after dinner at like 6pm i got some bad pains but ive been drinking more water one after another i am now on my 6th glass and the pain isnt so frequent and i think i might get away without the D again...now what i would like to know is that is it at all plausible i mean scientifically as to why this could help my symptoms? and i mean ive been eating some big trigger foods lots of chocolate and i havent had D yet since before new years

Could be. I know when I go out drinking when I come home I stay up for an hour or two playing online Texas Holdem and I drink at least 4 16oz bottles of water, sometimes more. I think it helps a little with hangovers.I do notice that after a day of drinking my gut is very relaxed, and rarely do I go more than once or twice, and 99% of the time they are very "normal" movements. Ones I could put off if I wanted.. no urgency at all. Very complete evacuations.I always thought it was the alcohol calming me. Never thought it could be the extra water I guzzle down.
