Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am only 25 years old. One year five months ago, I had a baby delivered by C-section. Immediately, I experienced low blood pressure, high heart rate, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, passing out, and feeling extremely weak. I have had blood work done, and my magnesium is low, and sometimes my potassium and iron are low. I needed to call someone to get me because I feared passing out while driving. Sometimes my blood pressure is as low as 74/52 mm Hg. I have been to a gastroenterologist who has tried to help me with nausea and vomiting. I have had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy. I have been to a neurologist who says it might be aortic stenosis, so I will now be referred to a cardiologist to wear a Holter monitor for at least a week to 30 days. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

The diagnosis of aortic stenosis is very apt for your symptoms, but it should have been picked up during your caesarian section. A person with aortic stenosis cannot have normal labor or a major operative procedure without complications. Your problem looks more like a dietary deficiency. Continue with Holter monitoring to rule out cause. I suggest you take fluids at a higher amount, including coconut water, citrus fruit juices, and water (five to six liters per day). Consult a gynecologist, get your abdomen ultrasound done to see for female reproductive organ status, and undergo a hormone profile.

I hope this information will help you.

Thank you.
