Starting To Think Preclampsia

michelleishopeful - November 14

Hey ladies, I have asked some questions in the past and you have all been so helpful and kind, maybe just one more question, then? I've been having this throbbing pain that can at any moment turn to stabbing pain on my upper left side of the rib cage..just below my br___t. Anyway, I cannot seem to sleep at night. I have tested to see whether it is something that I eat that my body just cannot seem to break down and the only things that seem to make sense is that something could be wrong with my pancreas (as it hurts to press too hard in the area of pain) or preclampsia. Sometimes I get breathless and see a little flickering light. - Not like a whole bunch of those cartoon birdies or anything like that, but a little dot of light here and there and my blood pressure goes up because I can feel my heart pumping more rapidly. (Sheesh this is getting long) I'm beginning to worry that this could be a problem. If you have an idea or advice please share. I am going to the doc on Monday and I need to figure out how to explain it to her in a way she will understand what I am saying and won't dismiss it. Thank you

Thank you gaer, doctor wasn't concerned at all, she thinks it is an unfortunate amount of gas led on by stress and certain foods. As long as I take care of myself I should be alright. Hope she is right! :)

Sounds like some of the stuff that's come on me more 'suddenly'...I've chalked it up to baby's run out of room so is making some. My breathing is horrid now because my lungs are no doubt the size of kumquats...glad your DR isn't worried.
