I haven't told him. I just started having it. I will ask him next week at my appt. I think I have decided it's from laying on my left side so much.

I have had some weird pain too. My BP isn't anywhere near yours, though. My pain is in my left shoulder blade. I had the EXACT same pain with my HELLP pregnancy, but they thought it was because my gallbladder needed to be removed. Well, I had it out a month after I had him, and now almost 13 years later, it's back! Who knows!

Ok, thanks Angie. This is so nerve wrecking. My bp definitely isn't low either. It's 150/100. Dr said to come back if it's 160/105. Or if I have other symptoms. Let me ask you, what were your symptoms? Mine were atypical, so my Dr says. I had no visual disturbances, no upper ab pain, no spots, or blurry vision. I had a headache, naseous, vomiting, and swelling.

I'm a psych holly, I was literally planning to sit on my butt allllll day. Lol. No walking, no evaluating, just computer and paper work.

I had HELLP with normal bp. But the pain was more than tenderness- like stop you in your tracks/being stabbed. I would keep a close eye on it and even be inclined to go back in with just "tenderness" in light of your other problems. You may want to visit the HELLP section "what the urq pain feels like" thread.

So... I'm home. Instructions are to report immediately if after I get a reading above 160/105 if doesn't go down after a 30 minute rest. Yikes! I'm also to report if I have visual disturbances like seeing spots or blurs, upper gastric pain, vomiting, severe headache, and/or swelling. Otherwise, I see him next Friday and we just wait this out til October 1st. Any suggestions??

The nurse just told me I need to be on a salt restricted diet. Lol. I just shut up. Well, I actually asked what's the recommended daily intake... Guess what, she didn't know! Anyway, I have no problem doing that if it works. I don't eat flour, sugar, or yeast for lupus! That is hard. I will do whatever it takes. Just don't give me misinformation. I'm so curious to see what my dr says about bed rest and sodium restriction. He should be here shortly... I will be asking!
