Re: Uric acid in blood

Re: Need Info from Those With Experience

I would definitely pester for the blood tests back sooner - a straightforward liver enzyme test and platelets should take no more than an hour! How about seeing your normal GP or going down to A&E? [Sorry I live in the UK so this advise might not be relevant]

Re: Hellp syndrome specialists in the UK?

Hi! I can't help you with your specific question, but I can send lots and lots of hugs from Greater London. I do know that you can request your hospital notes and can request someone go through them with you, although in your case it might be worth asking if that can be done by someone different. I ...

Re: do symptoms come and go?

Not sure I can help you much as I had very few symptoms, the only one (that we realised afterwards) was pain in the lefthand side under my ribcage (liver), this pain definitely came and went - I put it down to the baby moving!
