HELLP!... I just found this last night after desperation to find out what was wrong with my daughter. She has recently become very ill to the point that she could even speak. She was rushed to the ER from Ecare they said she needed a blood transfusion, but the ER just gave her fluids and sent her home. When she finally went back to work they checked her blood pressure, and it was high again. They Asked her if she, or anyone in her family had ever had Preeclampsia,or Eclampsia. Well after ready everyone's post here I have learned that, not only my daughter maybe suffering from Eclampsia, I maybe as well!. You see 35yrs ago it was called toxemia, which I was told I had with every symptom; which of corse no one explain the severity of it. I was kept in a pitch dark room after giving birth, and my baby girl which is 4'9 and a little over 100lbs, was kept in incubator for a couple of days; because her lungs were not fully developed she had only weighed 5 pounds. One thing I do remember is, one nurse telling me; text me on lays dormant. Well I was luckily to have to more children 10years later, and she was right, but it only got worse for me. My last baby 22yrs ago was emergency C-section he wasn't breathing when they got him out, and they had to resuscitate both of us... Needless to say my husband said no more children!. But once again the Eclampsia was overlooked... And I have NEVER BEEN THE SAME!.. I can't even get out of bed... So please can someone help??? my questions are: 1 2 is it hereditary,or can you pass it to your children 4 Is there a Dr in Dallas
