HELLP is more serious than this article makes it sounds. If not treated, you will go into a coma and die. I had HELLP @ 30 weeks 4 days and within 6 hours of being admitted to hospital, was having an emergency c section. If you have a severe headache, nausea, pain in your side or are vomiting, go to the hospital immediately. Heartburn is also a symptom that may show up long before the pain or headaches.
