Was ill with postnatal psychosis. Lot of salt intake. Suffering from confusion and pancreatic problems. Related to salt intake?

Hi, in 2007 I was very ill with postnatal psychosis after the birth of my child. I did loads of odd things (my mom tok care of my baby as i was too ill). However, in thinking I had evl spirits in me I proceeded to swallow about 10 tablespoons of salt, washed down with water. I threw some up. After this, I got totally worse, really confused, hallucinations. I did not get medical help. I also began suffering pancreatic problems. Could the extra confusion plus pancreatic prob be linked to salt intake? thanks

Hi there, thanks for asking. high salt intake can lead to confusion which is transient. It cannot cause pancreas problem. Post nasal psychosis is a problem that the person should be treated properly after. It can cause to depression in long term. Women who experience one episode of post natal psychosis, should know that they may have another episode in the future pregnancy. It is good to have a visit with your psychiatrist when you have time. I wish you a good health.
