I feel ok. Seems like since I was discharged, my headache is more frequent, not necessarily more intense though. I also feel naseous (like now). Last night had some type of pain/tenderness in my abdomen, right under breasts on the right side. What's that?! Upper gastric pain? I called on call dr. He said if my blood pressure remained high after I took it when I got home to go to labor and delivery. Still no swelling at all or visual disturbances. At all. What to do, what to do??? 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.

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 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!

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.
