In brief: Possibly related

Increasing your fluid intake may have loosened your bowel movements just as not enough fluid intake may result in constipation.
Count other sources of your fluid intake to see if you're exceeding 8 eight ounce glasses of fluid per day. If troublesome diarrhea persists it may also be a viral infection or a food intolerance. If bowel function doesn't return to normal,see your MD for evaluation.
