In brief: None or many

Some people have mild hyponatremia without any problems.
But some people can get confused, disoriented, have convulsions have change in behavior and more. Depending how fast or slow the pt. Developed the hyponatremia we have to replace the sodium fast or slow. Fluid intake must be restricted. Intraveonous solutions with sodium could be given in emergencies to replace the sodium faster.
