Yep, not only can it take months to really feel better but sometimes pregnancy has unmasked your genetic hypertensive trait. Pregnancy strains our immune systems because putting up with a demanding foreign organ is really difficult, and preeclampsia often leaves us with leftover hypertension. Sucks, I know.

Hello, my little one is 7 months old. I had preeclampsia that developed into hellp syndrome. After all this time I am still feeling as though I have absolutely no energy and I've been blaming it on juggling my work schedule as an EMT in a super busy Emergency Room and an infant. That sentence alone makes me tired! Now I'm coming to terms with the fact that I just don't feel right and there is something still wrong I've been checking my BP which is a lovely pre-hypertensive state of 130's/90's which was not the case before my pregnancy I had an awesome BP! I'm just wondering if anyone else after all this time or longer is still experiencing low energy, hypertension, possibly flank pain associated with your kidneys anything at all?? Seeing as all the physicians (both my co-workers and primary care) say that everythings supposed to magically disappear as soon as the baby is delivered. I'm most definitely going to make an appointment with a new Dr I'm not a fan of telling them I have preeclampsia and them telling me I don't so I'm on the hunt for a new more thorough physician until then I need all the info I can get!

Thanks for reading looking forward to hearing from you!
