When you say eating a small amount, how much are you talking about? And what foods are you getting this extra salt from? Your body may be holding water because you have been edging toward dehydration. Even a low salt diet has 1500 grams. More data is needed. Even if you do 't use the salt shaker, you can consume a huge amount with certain foods even if not the processed food types.

Everyone's weight fluctuates throughout the day. I often hear of people gaining 2-4 pounds with a higher sodium intake day. They report hands swelling, rings feeling tight, etc. Usually weight returns to a more "normal reading" in about 3-4 days.
Now... you are reporting 4 kg, which is close to 9 pounds gained and you are reporting more discomfort with the symptoms and side effects....I encourage you to talk to your doctor.

Ever since I lost weight, I am having a lot of problems with salt. Whenever I eat salt now, I retain water. I gained 4kg in a day just from water. It really hurts on my thighs and upper arms. How long does it take for my body to get used to a normal salt intake? I want to eat normally again, I haven't used salt more than a year and now whenever I just use a small amount, my body retains water like crazy :(
