What specifically causes the "flu"-feeling symptoms?

Postby jean » Tue Nov 01, 2011 10:40 am

What specifically causes the "flu"-feeling symptoms? When I had HELLP in my 1st pg, I def. felt that "fluish" feeling..what specifically causes that? Low platelets?
Right now I have no symptoms other than an extremely mild pain sometimes when I'm laying down or sitting up at night that goes away after changing positions (so I don't know that it's HELLP related or not?)

Our second son was born at 39 weeks gestation in Nov of 2011. No HELLP or pre-e! Took LDA starting at week 12 and went off of it at week 38!

For some reason I thought the nausea/pain/vomiting was caused by impaired liver function, I'm not 100% positive though. I had that very weak feeling even though I didn't have HELLP- maybe because of pulmonary edema.

Sorry you aren't feeling 100%, what does your doc have to say about the pain? I know when I was dealing with normal pregnancy aches and pains my chiropractor was a huge help.
