Feel sick after drinking water

on 5/18/13 8:13 am - NJ
Sometime when I drink water I get a very sick feeling..nauseous as heck! This usually happens if I drink it when I haven't eaten for a few hours.. Anybody else experience this? I'm trying really hard to get enough water but I can only take really small sips! I appreciate your responses.

I get the same thing. Would like to see what others have to say.

I get the same thing, no matter what temp the water is. Just drink it with something added. lemon, crystal light etc.

Someone said earlier that dehydration can cause nausea.

I'm about 10months post op and I still have a problem with plain water. I do fine if it has something in it... Mio, Crystal light, lemon, etc.

I'm a year out and only recently have been able to drink plain water.  I spoke to my surgeon about it awhile back and he said alot of people suffer from that.  I still prefer having something in the water though. It will get better.  Best of luck to you.

Taking it one day at a time.

I'm 21 months out and I still have an issue with plain water, especially at room temp. I get really nauseous and have to have it either very warm (i can guzzle that w/out any problems) or icy cold on a very hot day. Even as far out as I am, I still struggle getting 64oz in. Good luck to you, hope your issue w/water resolves sooner than i've been experiencing.

Are you on any kind of meds for stomach acid like pepcid?  Early out, if I missed a dose of that drinking water would make me feel nauseous.  Drinking protein shakes (or milk, something that is more 'base') would help.

No I'm not on any meds for stomach. I drink protein drinks but sometimes I get so thirsty only water will quench.

I had surgery Aug. 27, 2012 and I havent been able to drink water since. Even the flavored waters feel like lead inside my pouch. I can drink tea and coffee strangely enough but I usually stick to sugar free chocolate milk.
