The following are symptoms that my doctor has noticed over that past 2 weeks....
paraestheia(numbness) of the hands, especially at night
High blood pressure, last check 157/85
glucose in urine, no protein
swelling of the hands and lower legs
He has not diagnosed me as having pre-eclampsia...yet, but I fear this is what is going on. Are the above all symptons of pre-eclampsia or just stress. Could I just have developed diabetes?
Also, I have a 4 hour flight in 5 days for 2 weeks vacation. Is flying safe? Will it cause my symptoms to get worse?
What can I do to get the blood pressure down, aside from a prescription from my doctor?
I don't seem to be getting these answers from my doctor. He does not seemed too concerned right now. Please respond and help me sort this out!
