Symptoms of Eclampsia
Symptoms of Eclampsia: Introduction
The primary symptoms of eclampsia is seizures (convulsions) in a pregnant woman who does not have a history of epilepsy. Other symptoms include muscle aches and pains, agitation, and loss of consciousness. Stroke, coma and death of the mother and fetus can also occur.
Before eclampsia develops, women generally have symptoms of advanced preeclampsia. These include sensitivity to light, nausea, vomiting, upper abdominal pain, headaches, blurred vision and bloating. Long before these symptoms of advanced preeclampsia develop, there are early clinical signs of the disorder. These include high blood pressure (hypertension) and protein in the urine or proteinuria. Women are generally not aware of these signs, which is why it is so important to get regular prenatal care, during which women are tested for hypertension and proteinuria....more about Eclampsia »
