I am new and was hoping to get some peace of mind for some of these symptoms I'm having. I had triplets on Sept 23rd and developed preeclampsia post partum. I went home on blood pressure meds 6 days later and my blood pressures were dropping- still in the 140's/80's at the time.
I started to get a migraine type of headace above my left eye for several days and then I had some horrible visual problems out the same eye. Hard to describe but I had sensitivity to light and hard to keep it open.
They admitted me to the hospital for 3 days where I had magnesium sulfate for 52 hours. I am home and feel awful. My blood pressures suddenly dropped low (109/67) so I stopped taking the labetol. I am still running low to normal but feel very fatigued and dizzy upone standing.
My eye disturbances have continued but now feel like sensitivity to light and some sort of peripheral vision problem out of my left eye. It's very uncomfortable. I have an appointment with the opthalmologist next week.
Is this type of visual disturbance common? I've only read about spots, tunnel vision, black spots, etc which I don't have.
Will this vision issue go away?
Lastly, do I feel so crummy from the sudden drop in blood pressure? I feel worse than I did when they were high.
Thanks for your support. This is a scary and dreadful thing to go through.
