An aortic dissection is often fatal, presenting with chest pain often radiating through to the back. It may be a tearing sensation.

That depends: On what your blood pressure measurements have been prior.

If you have headache, blurred vision, nausea/vomiting and sudden swelling of face hands or feet, you need to be evaluated immediately. Notify your OB right now if you have these symptoms and then go to L and D ...Read more
