    The blurred vision sounds like you are still having trouble with that BP. I had symptoms after I left hospital, they were worst about 5 days after my C-Section and I went on more medication. I had my BP rechecked every two days, did they tell you when to see your GP? I'd make an appointment soon so they know what's going on and can check you regularly to make sure the amlodipine is working.

    Yes I had blurred vision, dizziness and whooshing in my ears. I had anxiety too, from my complicated pregnancy and it just got worse with bub in NICU. I went on anti anxiety meds eventually (escitalopram) and wish I'd accepted them earlier.

    So you had all this after being discharged from the hospital? How long for ? Crazy all the symptoms I'm so over it....
    How are you now? Any long term effects?
    Yeah I think I'll ask for some of that medication too I'm not really coping especially with the sleeping. My body just doesn't want rest in running in adrenalin.

    Your body is overtired, hormonal and stressed which is why it probably has done that (jerking you awake). When you see your gp see what they can prescribe with the valium to help. It does get better. And hopefully the meds help your BP as well. Can I also suggest you ask your GP if they can refer you to see someone to discuss what's happened? Having a premmie is a big deal and you have been through a lot. It might help talking through what happened and how you are feeling etc.

    Also, I saw pics of your bub and she is gorgeous. So strong and healthy for such a little one. You have done a fabulous job caring for her.

    Yes all those were after discharge. My BP was normal on the last day so they stopped my meds and it went back up. With meds they went away after a few days and no long term effects. My BP took about two months to settle to the point of not needing meds and its stayed normal now.

    Thank you very much she's amazing i can't wait till she's mine at home!
    Yeah that's what I was thinking regarding the jerking.
    I'll ask her on Wednesday and see a councillor or something. In happy and sad and it will probably be like that for a while.
