To be honest, I usually have slightly high blood pressure - not alarming or anything, nurses and doctors have always mentioned it, kind of always in passing kind of thing.
I had it when I was pregnant with my first born - not high, the same as usual.
With this one... I have normal blood pressure.
I also have a a dull ache to excruciating throbbing that stays with me 24/7 at the base of my skull. It never goes away, and sometimes, it creeps forward to envelop my entire skull, the pressure points being the base of my skull, temples, and behind my eyes. It even blurs my vision some times.
Nausea is also sometimes associated with it, very rarely vomiting.
When these symptoms started to occur, I became concerned, and spoke with my OB's on-call nurse. The original nurse wasn't there. She thought it was migrained and made a prescription for me. Now, I'm just not so sure.
I have an appt with my OB this Thursday.
