I have seen spots lately. Yesterday was bad. I was super stressed and saw them off and on almost all day. TMI, but I had more bowel movements yesterday than I usually do in a week. We were very busy car shopping and nothing was going as planned. I still don't have a car.
But I decided today to take it easy. I have stayed home, cleaned a little bit, but mostly have been lazy. I haven't seen any spots.
When I had pre e with my son, my main symptoms were severe pitting edema and seeing spots. I never had protien in my urine. I didn't have protien when my bp went to 190/110 in the ER. The only time my bp sky rocketed was in the ER, when my body went red and my platelets were in the millions. It was a HELLP. 1 week post partum.
So right now, my bp is good, no protien in my urine, no swelling, but spots!! Those damn things are back.
I go to the dr tomorrow and I am going to tell her about the spots. I am thinking she is going to put me on modified bed rest. Appearantly the stress and hustle yesterday probably made my BP go up and that probably made me see the shooting star spots.
I have a bp monitor at home and today it has stayed below 125/75.
Anyone else have a problem with vision disturbances? And how early did it began?
Honeslty I have had the vision problems since I had my son, but these spots are different. They are floaters, they are like flashes of light everywhere, shooting star like.
