Patient :I am currently 22 weeks pregnant, I have had high blood pressure since the age of 14 years old. I am currently taking medication to keep my blood pressure regulated. I also have been diagnosed with pannic disorder. At one point i was supposed to be hospitalized because my blood pressure and heart rate were so high they said i should of had a stroke. I was wondering if i should ask my doctor for a planned c section because i am concerned that labor will spike my blood pressure and anxiety.
