Well I had some Kidney troubles and thought it was stones. I drank a lot of water to flush the stones out. Now I am water toxic with low salt levels in my blood. It is called Hyponatremia. You get very ill with it and it is life threatening.

So be careful to not have too much water. I don't believe i had too much. But if kidneys are not working right then you can become water toxic. Even healthy people can get water intoxication.
