I am 7 weeks pregnant so I had stopped taking my blood pressure meds about 4 weeks ago. I changed primary care physicians after my phone calls were not answered. The new primary doctor said my hugh blood pressure is because I have preeclampsia. I did mention again that I have not had ANY medication for 4 weeks and that I had been taking Verapamil before finding out I was pregnant.
I have an appointment to see the OB next week but my new primary care really scared me even indicated that I should end the pregnancy. He prescribed Methyldopa.
Is hid diagnosis correct?
I know the print out he gave me says diagnosed around 20 weeks and had this website listed.
what happend if you had high blood pressure before you were pregnant? I am confused and scared.
what can you tell me about high blood pressure patients and pregnancy.
