Excess Fluid retention can cause Difficulty Breathing.

There are two types of excess fluid retention that cause difficulty when breathing. Fluid build-up in the lungs known as pulmonary edema can cause a raise in pressure in the pulmonary artery, increasing difficulty when you breathe. If pulmonary edema is not treated, you will have an increased risk of heart failure. The other type is fluid in the abdomen, which causes it to swell and puts pressure on the lungs, constricting your breathing capabilities. See your doctor immediately if you suffer from shortness of breath!

Occurrence of Skin Wounds.

Wearing the wrong type of shoes can lead to excess fluid retention in the feet and ankles. This may cause friction and you may experience friction and even skin wounds, even more so when temperatures rise during the summer months or long flights. When left untreated, these wounds can progress to foot ulcers and be a breeding ground for funguses and bacteria. This is especially detrimental if you are diabetic, as you have a lowered sensation and slower healing capability. Your local clinic or pharmacy should be able to assist you with proper wound care and refer you to a doctor if they think it is necessary.

Watch out for Chest Pain.

With an accumulation of excess fluid retention in the abdomen and lungs, the pressure exerted on your chest can be quite uncomfortable. This type of fluid retention is usually seen in the case of liver disease, heart and kidney disease and heart failure. Certain medications can also be to blame. Some common types are birth control pills, steroids, anti-depressants and blood pressure medicines. If you are unsure of what you are taking, see a specialist and remember to take with all medications and supplements, so that the doctor can have an in-depth overview of what you are putting into your body, as well as the effects it may have on your health and wellbeing.

Low Sodium Levels

Your sodium and water balance are very connected and it is very important that this is well looked after. Too much fluid can cause low sodium levels in the blood, causing fatigue, irritability, restlessness, vomiting, muscle weakness and headaches. Excessively low sodium levels can even lead to convulsions, loss of consciousness and even hallucinations, according to a recent study published by Medline Plus.
