My blood pressure has been iffy and I've had protein in my urine, and platelets are dropping. Today I'm extremely nauseated and my upper back hurts. Think it's related or probably nothing?

Across the back or right sided upper back?

I think across the back. Its eased up a little already since I've posted. The back of my right shoulder is sore, but maybe it's how I'm laying.

It sounds like they are concerned about HELLP syndrome with low platelets. Upper back pain in the right occur because of issues with your liver. 

I would say it's wisest to call your physicians office and talk to the on call doctor. If you aren't sure if the back pain is positional, then maybe try seeing how you feel in an hour or two?

Well by that point wouldn't my bp be really high? The highest it's been so far is like 144/92, which is high for me.. I run usually around 110/60.. something like that.

No, not necessarily. And that's still a significant elevation!

It's crazy because some other people hear that reading and they're like, "oh that's not bad." And I'm like, "really?..that's a big difference from my normal..?" Seems like only my midwife gets concerned over it. I got sent to be monitored in labor and delivery with that number and the nurses acted like my midwife was crazy..but I've had preeclampsia with both of my two past pregnancies.

It's a bit difference, yes! And it's high enough to be concerning, especially with your history.

I think it would be smart to go ahead and call. If it were me, I would.
