In brief: High blood pressure
For high blood pressure anything that you can do to lower your blood pressure will help.
Things such as lying in bed, relaxing, remaining calm will help, in addition avoiding salty foods and those with caffeine will also help. The only treatment for preeclampsia is to deliver the baby before other symptoms develop.
