     I am at 20 year old female. I had a child a year ago and I had pre eclampsa. Now my blood pressure is on average this week is 138/90 is this normal?

     

     

     

    I get migrane headaches...

    I also see like shadows out of the corner of my eyes..

    Atleast 5 times a day my vision gets blurry....

    And sometimes I see completely black for like 10 secs

    can anyone help my drs think I'm crazy

     

     

    The highest it has been this week just randomly checking it 3 times a day was 140/90

     

     

     

     

    When I was pregnant I had to have her a month early because they were afraid we were gonna die...When I went into the hospital that night the lowest my blood pressure was with medicine was 159/103

    Hi Kenziesmommy,

     

    Congratulations on your little one!  I have two recommendations:

     

    1.  Seek a second opinion. - Any time you are not satisfied with the care you're receiving from your physician, there is nothing wrong with getting a second opinion.

     

    2.  Take steps to lower your levels naturally. - A blood pressure of 138/90 is elevated and needs to be treated.  At this level, making diet and lifestyle changes can be effective.  I recommend you look at the DASH diet, it is very effective at lower blood pressure levels.

     

    All the best,

    Lisa Nelson RD
