Can not drinking water/exercise lead to a buildup of toxins that can result in headaches, nausea or other symptoms? I rarely do either.
Water retention: Water retention means the body through the kidney and sometimes the intestine is reabsorbing water perhaps to excess. It will reabsorb water from whatever the water containing liquid is......If you drink beer its the water part that is reabsorbed for instance. If you were to drink the drug Furosemide in its solution form, the drug part would override the water and you'd lose water due to drug. ...Read more

Diet modification often results in GI & non-GI manifestations, but perhaps you need some guidance. Ask your doctor at this time for a check-up & his/her advice. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can drinking a lot of water cause fluid in your Eustachian Tube to be worse? How many bottles of Poland spring water is okay to drink?
No: The Eustachian tube is just that a tube. It connects the inner ear to the back of the throat. No fluid stays in it. Drink enough so that you urinate mostly clear. If you are nauseous from drinking water it is too much. There is no magic number of bottles of water. The 8 glasses a day is not based in science. ...Read more
Why does Prednisone cause bloating and water retention when it's used as an anti-inflammatory to reduce swelling?
Reported but rare:
I've given B12 shots to hundreds of patients and have never seen this happen so I was going to say no, but in researching this some sites list "feeling of swelling of the entire body" and "swelling of the ankles or feet" as possible side effects. This is very rare.

What is neuropathy and can it be cured? Dizziness, very disoriented.Tingling hands, fingers, feet, and also swelling , water retention, feels like i'm drunk cannot walk straight, very much afraid of falling, i feel like i'm tilting more to one side .
"Neuropathy" : "neuropathy" as a term is usually used to describe or label diseases of the peripheral nerves, so it is also often called "peripheral neuropathy" to emphasize that this is not a term to use to describe diseases of the brain or spinal cord. There are many types of peripheral neuropathy, and several ways to classify them, based on whether the major systems involved are those which provide nervous system input to muscles (motor neuropathies), those that are involved in sensation such as touch, pressure, heat, cold, pain, etc (sensory neuropathies), or those that are involved in control of involunatry functions such as maintenance of blood pressure, sweating, and bowel and bladder function. There are mixed neuropathies, pure motor neuropathies, pure sensory neuropathies, etc. Equally, there are classifications by cause (etiology), such as diabetic neuropathy (which is usually a sensory neuropathy but may involve motor problems or autonomic problems in some patients) or ischemic neuropathy (neuropathy caused by insufficient blood supply to some nerves). Some neuropathies have a genetic basis, others are acquired. Some are due to other diseases involving nerve secondarily, such as diseases in which the immune system attacks blood vessels, producing vasculitis, which then can produce ischemic neuropathy in the affected nerves. This often produces a clinical pattern called "mononeuropathy multiplex", meaning multiple nerves are involved one at at time with no pattern, whereas a lot of other types of neuropathy as I have described above are "polyneuropathies", involving multiple nerves usually in symmetric patterns, such as in what is called a "stocking and glove" distribution. So the causes are different, and some are identifiable and curable, others are not curable but are treatable, and some are difficult to treat. So this is a long answer to your main question about "what is neuropathy". Some of what you describe could be a peripheral polyneuropathy: tingling sensations in your hands and feet, feeling "drunk" which may mean your sense of where you are in space is not working well, leading to a feeling that you may fall. However as dr krob suggested "dizziness", swelling and water retention, and disorientation are not commonly associated with neuropathy and could suggest that you have a serious medical condition which needs prompt evaluation and treatment. Some of these might also cause neuropathy; so, to pick just one possibility (not to say you have this), there are diseases called "collagen vascular diseases" such as lupus which may damage the kidneys, producing water retention, swelling of the legs, feet, and hands, and this may also affect nerves by causing vasculitis, giving you the tingling and perhaps also the "feeling like i'm drunk". So see a physician, very soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
