Signs and Symptoms

Symptoms of fluid overload include a gradual mental dulling, drowsiness, weakness, confusion, coma, convulsions and death.

Complications

Excessive fluid intake can be dangerous because:

  • It can cause pulmonary edema, a condition where water enters the lungs.
  • It can dilute the electrolytes in your blood and cause low blood-sodium levels (hyponatremia).
