I gave birth to my baby boy last Saturday. I still have swelling in my feet and today I have had a violent headache. I took some painkillers but I can still feel the headache underneath. My bp dropped low during labor and right after (101/65). During the pregnancy, it was consistent at 130/70. I'm not totally sure it's high blood pressure but the symptoms I'm experiencing suggest that it is. I'm wondering if any one has any experience with this. TIA.
