My vision is fine. And i had gallstones but my gallbladder was removed so the pain kind of felt like that. It was between my ribs then spread to the top of my ribs and yesterday it was on just the right side but not horrible pain just enough to make me uncomfortable. I haven't had any pain today and i have a appointment tomorrow so the dr can test my urine and blood pressure. I have a feeling it might of been my anxiety getting the best of me. Thank you for responding!

Where, exactly, is your pain? Does it feel like it's in your back, or is it more like a stitch in your side?

How is your vision? Do you have any blurriness? Do you see spots?

Have you been able to take your blood pressure at your grocery store pharmacy, or other location?

Some of what you're describing CAN be exacerbated by anxiety, but they can certainly be early warning signs for pre-eclampsia. Good for you for noticing! If you cannot calm your nerves, and you seriously think something is wrong, then go to your doctor. If you have a good doctor, they will not be upset with you for this. You are being vigilant and listening to your body.

I been having rib pain the last 2 days. But today it has been on the right side it's not horrible pain just enough to know it's there. I have headaches 5 out of 7 days i don't have any swelling on my hands or face. I am nauseous. My anxiety is getting the best of me. I wanted to know if this could be preeclampsia? I also have gestational diabetes i have a appointment with the dr on Thursday i just want to know if preeclampsia pain is severe or am i just freaking out for no reason.
