Too much of anything is not good.

I know that you can die of too much pottasium or too much water in the body. I assume that too much sodium isn't good either!

What color is your urine? If it's not a lemon yellow color (i.e. if it's very pale & watery) maybe you have too much water in your system?

There's no such thing in the medical literature as "sodium poisoning". Yes, you can retain sodium and therefore water, and end up feeling bloated. As long as your kidneys are working (i.e. you don't have kidney disease), they will keep the sodium in the bloodstream at an appropiate level.
