High blood pressure after pregnancy

After my pregnancy I developed high blood pressure has this happen to anyone and how long has it lasted if it did? To answer some background questions this is the first time I have never had this before it has been high since the delivery ten days ago. I exercise, do not eat salty foods, etc. I did gain a lot of weight this pregnancy but that was due to the bed rest and steroids, but my blood pressure stayed around 120/80 at the highest. Now it runs 150-200/ was so ba I passed out and had to go to the ER.

  • Make sure you go see your doctor about this. I hope they can help you get your blood pressure under control soon. Do you have an infection?
