I got diagnosed with the HELLP syndrome with my daughter after going to the doctor the thursday before and everything was normal then that Sunday my vision got so much worse. Turns out I had the HELLP syndrome without knowing it and no one caught it. Now this pregnancy it is the same spot where I had got diagnosed with it with my daughter. I had the heartburn beyond relief the last couple weeks where I am downing tums and the doctor just keeps trying these different prescriptions to help out with the heartburn and they aren't working. I drink water like crazy so it isn't that. Lately my blood pressure has been a little higher for me. The bottom number in the 80's and the top in the 130's. I usually have it around 120/70 or around there at the beginning it was 120/60. My doctor keeps just telling me everything is "normal" no one listens to the fact I have had the hellp syndrome and my vision is so off it is affecting my driving and school work. It causes me headaches and I have problems reading now. I don't know what to do. No one seems to listen to me and I am miserable. My ankles, feet, legs, and fingers are just so swollen lately where they form around my flip flops. I went to the er the other night just the er and my bp was 136/82 before I left the house then when I got there it was 131/96. I am so lost. I am trying to do everything good for my daughter and I don't want to have another rough delivery because of this. HELP?! Thank you. I am 37 weeks by the way.
