Just that: 2 fast 2 cold is not tolerated by all drink slowly small amounts, ice water is one cause, like a brain freeze with ice cream, your esophagus is rebelling. Treat it nicer. Try various temps, and try no cal flavors like country time and others on the market. Cheaper than buying flavored water. No tax on water but flavor is taxed.

Good: Good news! The only stool colors we get really concerned about are red (blood from colon), black (blood from small intestine or stomach), or white (liver is not working well). Colors such as brown, yellow, orange, green, even blue (blue kool-aid or blueberries) or purple (beets) can all be normal and usually associated with diet or viral illness. If you have a persistent change in your stool habits, you should contact your physician since this could be a sign of an underlying disorder, but a one-time strange stool that is not red, black or white is usually of no concern.

Your symptoms are unlikely related to your water intake during exercise. ...Read more

Address the acne: Nobody here is going to tell you how much water is right for you. You are almost grown up, and you need to address your acne, which is a serious social and professional liability now. If topical benzoyl peroxide and/or isotretinoin have not cleared you in two weeks, see your physician for prescription strength Rx. ...Read more

Masturbating once a day leading to mild stomach pains and digestive problems that are alleviated by eating or drinking water. Why does this happen?

Not related.: The symptoms you're having with your stomach are not related to masturbation. I would try some antacids to see if they help your stomach problem. If they do not, then I would see your doctor if they persist. Good luck, and don't worry about the masturbation. It will not cause this kind of symptoms. ...Read more

I bloat & get stomach pains no matter what I eat or drink, even tea & water. My lipase levels were high, 352. What could cause this? Is it all related

Two separate issues: The bloating and gas may very well be unrelated to your elevated lipase (two separate issues). Bloating and gas may be due to celiac disease or ibs related. An elevated lipase level may be pancreatic in origin (pancreatitis) but may also have other non-pancreatic sources. Evaluation by a gastroenterologist would be appropriate. ...Read more

Occasionally I get a squeezing pain on the right side of my abdomen. It is relieved by drinking water and then belching. Any idea what this is??

Unusual: Pain in the center of the chest relieved by drinking water is characteristic of esophageal spasm, but I haven't encountered this syndrome suggesting transient spasm in the abdomen. It's possibly a gas bubble in the intestine or transient gall bladder spasm since it's centered on the right side of the abdomen. It would be interesting to hear a gastroenterologist's opinion. ...Read more
