Symptoms of alkalosis can include any of the following:
Confusion (can progress to stupor or coma)
Numbness or tingling in the face, hands, or feet.
Prolonged muscle spasms (tetany)
What should be the pH of the human body?
The human body must keep its pH within a very narrow range in order to survive and function. The ‘normal’ range is 7.35 – 7.45 for arterial blood (which is where we measure it medically).
What are the signs and symptoms of respiratory alkalosis?
Symptoms may include paresthesias, circumoral numbness, chest pain or tightness, dyspnea, and tetany. Acute onset of hypocapnia can cause cerebral vasoconstriction. An acute decrease in PaCO2 reduces cerebral blood flow and can cause neurologic symptoms, including dizziness, mental confusion, syncope, and seizures.
What are the symptoms of acidic urine?
As mentioned, uric acid in the kidneys or the urinary tract may develop into kidney stones. They are usually more common among men, and they can lead to various symptoms like back pain, pain in the abdomen, severe pain in the groin area, a high fever, cold chills, nausea and vomiting, and blood in the urine.
What is alkalosis and what are its clinical signs and symptoms?
Because hypokalemia is usually present, the patient may experience weakness, myalgia, polyuria, and cardiac arrhythmias. Hypoventilation develops because of inhibition of the respiratory center in the medulla. Symptoms of hypocalcemia (eg, jitteriness, perioral tingling, muscle spasms) may be present.
