Post Pardum High BP....help!
I am 31, post pardum (3weeks), have chronic hypertension which was well controlled during pregnancy on Labetalol 100 mg bid.  Now, I can't seem to keep my bp in accepable levels.  It is mostly running 130's/90's....even after uping my dose to 150 mg bid.  My primary care dr. is a little stumped....says it must be hormones.  Anyone else have experience with this?

Do you have a fast heart rate with the high blood pressures?  Did the doctor ever rule out pheochromocytoma with a sensitive fasting blood test called plasma free metanephrines?  Did your PCP check your cortisol level?
