Hello,
 
I live in Belgium. I am 30 years old and I suffer from IBS since the age of 19. When I say suffer, I really mean it. I have had attacks which lasted even more then seven hours of PAIN. And I mean severe, extreme pain, I could not stand up or lay down, only being cramped at the floor.  Also flatulence is a problem I have, but this doesn't bother me, only the other ones. HA HA HA.
 Well, for the pain I have checked many doctors and specialists, and I had a colonoscopy: nothing wrong they say, no Chrone disease. I've checked all the medicaments: Buscopan, a shot of buscopan in my arse, duspatalin, duspatalin retard, spasmomen. I've read some books about the problem. It turns out that I am the pain-type.
I tried to live with the problem and the pain. It never stood in the way of a job or something else but it was a problem and it could happen each moment of the day. A terrible, painful attack at work, in the car, on a party. I've had attacks in stressfull situations and also on totally not stressfull situations.
Like I said: it could happen every moment, and it lasts from half an hour up to 7 hours. You never know. The pain is terrible, it's like a knife they put in your stomach which they keep on turning or like a grenade that explodes from inside, each half a minute. Over and over again, and in the end your face is totally red of the pressure. I've noticed that when the pain and the contractions start to hurt, there is no lots you can do anymore, especially with medication.
 But now it comes, more than half a year ago i found THE SOLUTION. I had a severe, very painfull attack, again.
I wanted it to stop and took some medication, but it wouldn't go away. It looked like I had to wait and bite my lips until it would go away. I drunk half a liter of water, just to do something and at first it hurted even more, but then suddenly the pain went away. I drunk even more and then the pain was completely gone.
 Now, each time I feel an attack or pain coming up I start to drink water. A quantity between half a liter and 1,5 to 2 litres helps and you should drink it in one time, like a thirsty beast. This always works on me, and when YOU have these terrible pains you should try it, definitely. Maybe it works on you to.
 Water is the source of life. **** medicaments,doctors,specialists,books,tai-chi,yoga and colon massage, although they can be fun!

YOu can get Hyponetrenia drinking too much water so I would definetly run it by your Doctor. It can be fatal. I don't know the amounts but do know it happens. Also some people with heart disease need to limit water even more so please check with Doctor before you try this.

Hi Lord Puco,
Welcome to HealingWell! :-)
Thank you so much for sharing the solution you found for you pain. Funny how the answer can be from the simplest thing.
Never the less, like Canyon mentioned, anyone who thinks about trying this should consult their doctor of pharmacist first. I know this is an extreme case - but I remember some fraternity pledge dying because the frat boys kept pouring water down his throat. I believe it overloaded his kidneys. Anyway, I'm not saying this will happen... it's just that everyone should know that water isn't totally harmless.
Again, Puco, thank you for sharing what worked for you.

I just saw on the news that a woman died in Sacramento yesterday from too much water. She was in a contest at a radio station to see who could drink the most water without going to the bathroom. I assume she had gone since she was found in her home after the contest but this was the cause of death. Seemed like a timely message

I heard about this on the radio this morning too, but they mentioned that your kidneys can flush an average of 1.5 liters of water an hour; drinkign more than that overloads your system. And a lot of the problem is flushing out the vitamins and minerals, like salt. If you balance the heavy water drinking with food intake or vary it between water and a little Gatorade, or something similar, then it should be okay. I drink about 4 liters of water and green tea a day and have been doing so for months and months with no ill effect. But I drink that amount over the course of about 10 hours, and eat three meals a day and pee regularly. While there are a few cases every summer of people dying from too much water (last year it was a bike cop), there's some indication that the woman that died in the contest may have made the situation worse by *not* peeing.

One of the symptoms they mentioned of over-hydration is a headache. If you start to develop a headache soon after taking in a lot of water, stop drinking water. You should probably look into taking a sodium replinishing tablet immediately too, although ask your doctor what's best to do if you suspect you may be ODing on water.

Wow, 4 liters is alot. I think I need to drink more but I do have a bladder problem so try not to get overloaded. Also Dr says very small bladder but since it was not a problem when I was younger I really wonder about that diagnosis.

My secret to drinking enough is to keep a pitcher of water or green tea on my desk all day long. I'm too lazy to walk into the kitchen all the time, but if I have a cup of water or tea at hand, always full, then I'll drink the whole pitcher in a day.

The secret at home to drinking plenty are 32oz glasses. I fill one of those up to drink with dinner, and usually have part or all of another one during or afterwards. When it's in your hand, drinking just becomes a habit. And when you get used to drinking plenty at work during the day, you get really thirsty for it on the weekends too. I must have drank plenty yesterday; I got up to pee three or four times last night, LOL.
