High Blood Pressure

I went to my OB Dr. yesterday and my blood pressure was high, and i had protein in my pee. Today i went for an ultrasound and my blood pressure was still high. The Dr. told me to call if i started getting a headache or anything. I have the worst possible headache and its even hurting my ears. My shoulders have a sharp pain in them and i cant stand to move them. My face feels really hot, and i feel dizzy....What should i do?

  • WTF are you ignoring your doctor's advice for? Hopefully you're already on your way to the doc or hospital. Cafemom is the LAST place to be asking this question. The absolute first should have been your doctor.

  • Your doctor told you what to do, I suggest listening to that advice. If it's preeclampsia (which it sounds like) you're endangering yourself & your baby if you just sit around waiting for it to stop.

  • If your doctor is not in, go to urgent care or the ER. One of the first things on my list of reasons to go to the ER is if I have a combination high BP & a headache, or a headache that causes neck stiffness.

  • It is VERY serious! Head to your doctor's or the ER NOW!! Don't wait for the doctor to call back, because s/he's just going to tell you the same thing. It can escalate to a seizure really fast and you don't want to go there. GO!
