I have been told I have stigmata of preeclampsia.

Comment from: Marcelarose, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: October 14

I had a really bad headache and I kept throwing up. I could not eat and every time I drank water I would throw up. The next morning I could not get out of bed as my legs were paralyzed and my feet were very swollen. My husband had to carry me to the bathroom. My doctors said I had preeclampsia and very high blood pressure and had to have a C-section or I would die. I had my baby boy at 24 weeks. We both survived.
