Follow these personal tips to ensure that you're getting enough water and nutrients if you have IBD.
This past fall, I had a horrible case of bronchitis along with hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD), which caused ulcers in the back of my throat. It was difficult to drink fluids because of the pain from these ulcers, and I started to get dehydrated.
After three days of severe pain, I decided to walk to the closest pharmacy to buy some throat lozenges. At that point, I'd probably had only half of a 12-ounce bottle of water to drink in three days.
