28 weeks pregnant, dizziness, cold sweats, shaking, blurred vision. Medical attention required?

I am 28 weeks pregnant. Earlier today, I got a sudden feeling of dizziness . I started sweating but it was a cold sweat. I was shaky and my ears clogged up. I felt like I was going to faint. My vision got really blurry too. I called my doctor and she told me to come in the emergency room because it was likely that I could have an infection somewhere in my body. What could this be? And should go to the doctor?

Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

This sounds like either an episode of low blood pressure (vasovagal reaction) or a blood sugar issue. In both cases, you can get sweaty / dizzy / shaky. Yes, you should be seen by your OB/GYN and this needs to be brought to their attention. It does not sound like an infection.

I hope that this helps. Good luck and thank you for visiting.
