Kidney disease, bladder infections, cancer, etc. arenât related with water due to lack of ingestion. If you were experiencing an organic disorder, a real disease, you wouldnât be able to consume any liquid. It is possible, however, that you are experiencing a psychiatric problem. You can seek counsel from a psychiatrist or a mental health professional.
