PLEASE HELP!!!! NEED ADVICE
« on: June 13, 2014, 12:56:23 AM »
So, I was in a hot jacuzzi for an hour and I drank 55 ounces of water over the course of that hour. Am I at risk for water intoxication? it's been 30 minutes since I got out of the jacuzzi. Please help.

Am I just being paranoid or am i really at risk of dying from water intoxication

You're fine. Seriously.

I can't even.

This is ridiculous.

Water has a very low toxicity. You'd have to consume probably near 5 or more gallons.
