Patient: I am 7 weeks pregnant. I fell on the ice 2 days ago. Since then I have been having a lot of cramping (no spotting) and my blood pressure has been spiking into the 180-200 (systolic) range. My doc will not see me yet as I have not established until my apt next week. Should I visit the ER…I do not want to over react.
Symptoms: Cramping, hypertension
Doctor: Hello,With the Bp recording of systolic 180-200 then you should be in ER.History of fall in pregnancy should not c ause a high BP unless there has been an element of head injury or severe blood loss.In either the case a visit to ER is must.regards
