Hi has anyone had a problem with drinking to much water ?? I'm currently on no meds as my symptoms are only in morning realy now . Once I've been to the toilet enough times in then fine for test of the day . Not sure if I'm encouraging my body to go to the bathroom when I maybe shouldn't be doing ?? Has anyone else felt like this I'm a big water fan just trying to see if anyone else has had this thought?? Thanks everyone :)

My disease is mostly active in the ileum, which seems to affect how I ABSORB water, so I have found sometimes I drink so much and am still dry/thirsty constantly when flaring the worst -- but I don't think drinking too much water has ever been a problem.  If anything it's probably helping you!  :)
