9 Signs That You Are Drinking Too Much Water!

1) Throbbing headaches throughout day

When you drink too much water, your brain really expands in size and presses against the skull. A throbbing headache can result from the additional strain.

2) Losing urge to urinate

The ability to control urination can be "untrained" if you frequently overfill your bladder or hold in your urine for an extended period of time.

3) Drinking water when not thirsty

The best way to tell if your body needs more water is to pay attention to whether or not you feel thirsty. If you drink even though you don't want to, you drink too much.

4) Urine looks like water

If you drink enough water, your urine should be straw-colored to clear yellow. But if your urine is clear, you're probably drinking too much water.

5) Frequent Urination

On average, a person will urinate between six and ten times per day; therefore, if you urinate more than ten times per day, you may be drinking more water than your body requires.

6) You expect leakage sometimes

You can hold up to 30 ounces of fluids in your bladder until you're ready to urinate. Overhydration can cause bladder leakage in persons who try to "hold it" longer.

7) You vomit or experience nausea

Your kidneys can't remove excess water if you drink too much. That causes nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea from water retention.

8) Discoloration in hands, lips and feet

Hyponatremia frequently manifests as edema or discolouration of the hands or lips. Your skin will swell in tandem with the swelling of all of your body's cells.

9) Your Muscles cramp easily

Too much water causes electrolyte levels to decline, compromising equilibrium. Low electrolytes cause muscular spasms and cramps.
