Hello. They still dont know what the pain is. My OB is more concerned and puzzled by my High BP.SHe recently decided to hand me over to my peri for full care. I have an appt with him wed. will ask him. The pain is under my ribs, both front and back. It gets worse each day, It actually feels like my ribs are breaking after I eat. It also gets wrse when laying on my side. When I get the pain in my back, I can sometimes relieve it by putting pressure on it. Today, I got the usual pain after aeting and put a cylinder shaped object where the pain was , applied pressure by leaning back and and that brought some relief. Now the frontal pain, it hurts if I put any pressure on it.
I am wndering about hiatal hernis or something like that. Who knows.
I just want to find out what it is.
As far as the meds, none cause high bp except possible steroids. But both my OB and my peris nurse said it was not from the steroids as it began rising before steroids and since I have been decreasing.
Now whats new is, I began usimg the urine strips. I got the multistix. Not just to monitor the protein, I know it is too early for PRE E 13 wks, but to watch for other things as well.
Last night I had the highest reading of glucose, and trace amounts of protein.
This AM , I had small amount of protein and and NO protein, BUT I had trace amounts of blood and moderate amounts of leukocytes.
I dont know what this means, hopfully nothing. I just cannot read my body anymore. I dont know whats what and I dont think IT knows either. It is so inconsistant. I feel so fragile it is frusterating...I am only 13 weeks...it is not supposed to be like this.
