so im on bed rest cuz of high blood pressure
well today ive just been laying on the couch watching tv.
well like 10-20 min ago i started to have trouble breathing..
my air way feels really restricted. im also a little nauseous...
could this have anything to do with my high blood pressure...

i know that it gets harder to breath while your pregnant cuz of the baby squishing your lungs.. and ive already experienced that and it had been better with in the last week...
but this is worse then that..
it used to only happen when i was up and walking around
but i havent got up and walked around in over an hour.

any one have any idea why its happening?
or what i should do?

  • Call doctor-sounds like the same symptoms I had for high blood pressure SYMPTOMS ARE AS FALLOWS: Headaches, especially pulsating headaches behind the eyes that occur early in the morning.
    Visual disturbances.
    Nausea and vomiting.

  • i know i already have high blood pressure.
    i go to the doctor twice a week for it and the hospital once a week for a NST...
    they told me to come in if i get a head ache or nausea accompanied with a head ache
    extreme swelling in my hands feet or face
    or if i get pain in my upper abdomen..

    but they've never said anything about restricted breathing
