I have a history of HELLP and Pre-e which was diagnosed really late at 39 weeks in my previous pregnancy (although I believe there were several missed symptoms earlier on).
I am now currently 30 weeks. The past few days I have experienced upper quadrant pain in my left side (feels like my ribs hurt) and some vision "sparkles". Blood pressure is fine, no swelling, no headaches. I went to the doctor last week and urine was fine too. I had blood work done a few weeks ago which showed a decrease in platelets from my baseline, but doctor is not concerned since I have no other symptoms.
So, I am wondering if you can have upper quadrant pain on the left side? and can vision changes be an indication of pre-e without the high blood pressure?
