My wife was diagnosed with PE 9 days ago (34wk + 3). Her protein (24hr catch) was 600 and the BP hovers around 135's/85's. She was in Hospital for the first two days and then bed rest for the past 7 days. She has been very god about either laying on the sofa or in bed on her left side. I should mention we are in a sublet while our apartment is renovated so we are on unfamiliar sofa and bed. Her blood work (tested 3 times now - last test Friday) has been normal. She has no swelling, no URQP. She does have a minor headache (1 out of 10) for a few hours each afternoon.
Yesterday, she started to complain about a "stiff neck" and tightness in the muscle that runs along the top of her right shoulder. Massage seems to help a great deal and she has no problems sleeping through the night (meaning its not painful enough to keep her awake at night). She describes it as a kink in her neck from constantly laying on her side.
Can those of you who have had the Right Shoulder Pain that was a result of your PE explain how the pain felt, etc?
I'm certainly going to report it to our OB at our next appointment but that is 48hrs away and I want to be proactive if I think this is related. I have read the symptom descriptions and I've mostly found people describing it as someone pinching you along the bra strap line. (Is that the strap around the back or the strap over the shoulder? - sorry, a nervous husband).
Thanks from NYC
