Re : Help - tests for underlying conditions?

<t>It is a lot of blood work - and they will not always find something. All of my blood work came back fine - I am now finding that pregnancy unmasks cronic hypertension in me. The blood work is well worth it however - just be strong in what you are asking for. It is a shame that all OB of pre-eclam...

New to this forum..

<t>Hi - I have been posting on the Ask the Experts forum, but this may be a more appropriate place for me. I ended up with severe pre-e during my first pregnancy - it hit at 37 1/2 weeks and I delivered the next day a perfectly healthy baby. I started researching pre-e a few months later and came up...

Back from the UW - an update...

<t>I had my appointment at the UW hypertensive clinic today. They were all so excited that I knew of this website and the foundation!! My bp's were 120's/70's, so not very high, but my pulse was 115 which they considered very high. I got to meet with Dr. Easterling and he put me on Altenol (just 50 ...

Re : What about low pulse?

I was just put on blood pressure meds today for a high pulse and was told by the pharmasist that if my pulse went below 50 to call in - that it was not good. I would mention it to my OB.

Re : Does anyone have tachycardia with PE?

<t>Hadn't heard that term before, but I have what you are talking about - my pulse is high, although only 115 at the docs this morning, and this almost put me off the charts. I got put on Atenol, this seems to be what mos girls on here are on. Good luck and keep pressing for quality care.<br/> <br/>...

Re : Update with a rise in SYS.....

<t>Wow, it sounds like you are having some scarey times. I would really try to work something out where you will be able to get some more bed rest. I know that I am lucky to have my mom around, and I am not quite sure what I would do otherwise, but you need to take care of you. Good luck and let us ...

Re : Paranoia or justified concern?

<t>I agree with everything that Laura said. My bp's started going up early (but not really high, as yours arent yet), by OB gave it a month and when they were still high she sent me in for some tests at the University of Washington Hypertensive Department. I am now on Atenol - which will bring down ...

Re : Question of the Day: memory loss

<t>I had a totally different experience with Mag - I feel that it did not effect me at all. (isn't it funny that I capatalized it - seems to give it lots of power) I talked to a nurse yesterday who had asked me if I had Mag with the birth of my daughter and she said something like "if you had it you...
