Hello, Mzmcgee1232. 

Look at the label on your crystal light mix. It might have a huge amount of sugar. Even if it is sugar free, it uses chemical fake sweetener which is very hard on the body and hard to metabolize. Could the drink be causing your excessive gas? 

I have also been dehydrated and had IV fluids in the hospital. One dr told me by the time I felt symptoms, drinking water would not help. I now take electolytes everyday. There are several choices at vitamin shop or online. I also ordered something called"salt stick caps" that are capsules with electrolytes--easy to take. NUnn tablets are also good. Drop in a bottle of water, very tasty. They also have electrolyte gummies which are easy to take when you are out. 

Good luck.

Both times I was dehydrated, I did have to get IVs to get back on track. Then I started with the electolytes.

Since I have severe sinus issues, the post nasel drip will cause stomach issues and nausea.  I have had 8 sinus surgeries and suffer terribly from severe allergies andmpost nasal drip.  Try Zyrtec and see if that helps but see a really good ENT.  Let me know if I can give you any other information.
