I'm having tremors, night sweats, anxious/churning stomach, adrenaline rushes, heart pounding, nausea, light-headedness, white spots/flashes of light in my peripheral vision. Has anyone else experienced these things postpartum? I had my baby 8 weeks ago, and this started about a week ago. Waiting on blood test results from doctor, but I'm so worried. Help!

It is very normal i think most women get it. The light headedness and white spots are often a sign of high blood pressure which any Mum can get while looking after a new baby. It will go away after a few months. All the best

I have had lots of tingling in lower legs and lower arms, feeling weak at times and palpitations, low and high mood changes. Had loads of tests in A&E and blood tests all was normal. Baby now 8 weeks, has anyone had this?

10 weeks post partum symptoms
I am now 10 weeks post partum. I too have tingling in arms and legs, a sensation over my body, weakness, cloudines, mood changes, back and abdom pains.
I have gone to 2 ER's and 3 docs. All tests are negative. what is wierd is that all symptoms stopped for two days when I got what I believed was my period.??? I am being checking for my progesterone level and think it is all hormones. All of this started day 3 in the hospital.

I am 10 weeks postpartum. I have nausea, no appetite, vision issues, light headedness, weakness, adrenaline rushes, tingling in arms/legs, and much more.
I beleive it is my progesterone level. I am being tested. I know you posted a while back. How are you feeling?

I am responding to my earlier post. I called my ob. Its post partum depression. Its due to a fast drop of hormones the day you have the baby. I thought PPD was only mothers who had suicidal thoughts (which I do not have). It is a whole list of things. Go online and research PPD Physcial Symptoms. You will see all of yours are on the list. Hope this helps.
