Water makes me sick.
During my wife's first pregnancy they kept telling her to drink more water and it would solve the swelling problem she had. It wasn't until the last month of pregnancy that they figured out she was swelling because her kidneys weren't working, not because she wasn't drinking enough. She had Pre-Eclampsia but they would not diagnose that because her blood pressure wasn't elevated. It wasn't until after the birth that most of the classic symptoms showed up.
I would suggest drinking cranberry juice, it has much of the benefits of water without the negative aspect, for you at least, of being water.
mix gator-aide with water - the flavour may help...or carbonated water (club soda)...
Remember, Pop/Soda is mostly water - it's better to drink soda than nothing.
If it is somthing in the water than adding sulfur to water purifys almost all bacteria, if you are going to go "rough it" for a few days you use sulfur to purify river or lake water for safe driking.
If it is merely the taste of water than sulfur won't help, makes the water taste foul.
Crystal Light. Their lemonade is pretty good. They even sell the mini packets to mix in the small bottles of water.
If you don't want that, how about a lemon? I put lemon in my water and diet soda. Cuts out some of the after taste - not to mention it leaves a fresh, clean feeling.
Funny you should mention that. Sometimes when I'm out, I'll get lemon with my water. I've just got to be more attentive to see if I get as sick when I do that.
I do know lemon added to the water is advisable if you're EXTREMELY hot. The body simulates it better & quicker. Hmmmm.
Try bitters and soda with a lime.
I'll bet you have even made of few of those.
