I don't have a history of high bp in my family. During my pregnancy my bp stayed at about 116/60 (up and down a few numbers). I didn't have any problems until after I had my son. I started getting a bad headache 3 days after he was born but I didn't go into the E.R. until he was 12 days old and that is when by bp was 160/102. I stayed in the hospital for 16 days and the worst that I can remember my bp getting was 200/120 but I was put on morphine and delauded so my memory is a bit fuzzy. They caught the PRES after about a week of me being in the hospital and I was transferred to a different hospital and they did a CAT Scan. I was also tested for meningitis but that came back negative. I was changed hospitals because my lungs started filling up with fluid and I couldn't breathe. Let me know if you need any more information please.
