Title: High blood pressure when I stand up
Post by: chastity on December 19, 2009 at 07:55 PM
im Chastity..
I am hanging out on the couch in the living room.. I can go to the bathroom, but getting up causes my BP to shoot way up.. so I am scared I will end up in the hospital... trying to be good and stay put though.

You mentioned in another post that the doctors think you might have pre-eclampsia. You'll find out the results tomorrow of the 24-hr urine test, right?

I had pre-e, and I wish I had been more clear in describing my symptoms to the docs.  :( Be sure to let your OB know if you develop any other pre-e symptoms: sudden swelling in hands, face or feet; bleeding gums; terrible headache, dizziness, seeing spots, nausea, pain under the right rib that may come and go. My symptoms continued after delivery, and then I had this funky strange taste in my mouth, like cleaning products or ammonia. By then I had developed kidney failure so my body couldn't remove any toxins! Crazy, huh?

Keep me posted on how you're doing, okay?
