Question Asked:

"Good morning Doctors. I have a question. I had PIH in my last pregnancy. It surfaced at the beginning (150/100). It was under control till the day of delivery (140/80). Two days later it was 140/90 and my gynecologist placed me on Aldomet 250mg twice daily. During the pregnancy I was referred to a cardiologist who did an ecg and Echocardiogram. The ecg came out normal and the echo said 'slight regurgitation'. 4 months after delivery I had a serious sharp pain under my left breast. It was so intense. I went to the hospital and the doctor placed me on Clopidogrel, orphesic and atenolol (25mg atenolol) an sent me for an ecg which came normal. I went for follow up the next day and saw another doctor who after some questions concluded I have anxiety and placed me on furoxetil. Weeks later I went for my appointment with my cardiologist. He sent me for another ecg. This time I had palpitations whilst it was done. So it reported 'premature ventricular contraction'. He placed me on Clopidogrel (75mg, Bisprolol (4mg) and Valsartan (40mg) because I complained of constant tiredness, dizziness, headaches, light headedness and palpitations. On my own, I went for a FBS, FBC, PCV and malaria test. My FBS was 61mg/dl, my white blood cells high, PCV 39%, malaria negative. My question is what could be wrong with me? My baby is 5 months now and I still feel so dizzy, palpitations, terrible headaches and cannot sleep easily. "
