In brief: See below
Hyponatremia or low sodium level has many causes.
Low levels may be asymptomatic or accompanied by non specific symptoms like generalized weakness, and changes in mentation and cognitive function and in severe or rapid lowering of sodium cause seizures.

In brief: Low sodium concent'n
Hyponatremia describes a low (<120) sodium to plasma volume ratio.
This happens rarely due to low sodium intake, but most commonly is a problem in the excretion of free water (high volume). The causes and approach are complex. Simple treatments such as water restriction also have risks. Ask your nephrologist if you need treatment, and if so, how to proceed.
