I get very intense feeling of fullness and strong nausea every time I eat anything that contains sodium. It will often mess my digestion for the rest of the day.

I can handle acidic foods with no problems (lemons, oranges, vinegar), I can handle most spices with no problems, very warm and cold foods with no problems, but even the smallest pinch of salt or baking soda will trigger a horrible stomachache.

What might be the cause?

not sure but having similat symptoms (i just signed up to ask the same question)
I used to be able to eat copious amount of salt but last few weeks i get nauseated instantly after having just a bit.
I have stomach cramps and feel like throwing up shortly after eating salty foods. Ususally i use pickling salt for my own meals (grind it myself) and thought maybe the type of salt is the problem, but i have same symptoms when using sea, regular and pink salt.

Frequent urination can be related to diabetes.

Frequent urination can be related to diabetes.
Or stress / high adrenaline / low aldosterone. That would be congruent with the blood pressure increase. Do you feel stressed / are you going trough some struggles recently, @Slaweknysa? Are you aware of anything that happened 3 weeks ago, that might triggered this problem? Any change in diet / daily regime / general lifestyle?

I'm also struggling with frequent urination btw. I also have symptoms of dehydration like extreme thirst, dry mouth, dry skin, chapped lips and dizziness, altrough I'm getting fair amounts of liquids.

I'm really sorry to hear that! Hope things will get better soon.

I think the symptoms you are describing are caused by sodium loss triggered by stress hormones, but I have no idea why the same mechanism also prevents us from digesting enough sodium to replete the loss :(
