Pregnancy and Chronic Pain

May 06, 2018 7:11 PM

Has anyone had children with any type of chronic pain? I specifically have CFS. Possibly Fibromyalgia too, but it is still being investigated. I would love to know your experiences with it. I am not pregnant yet. But I know in due time, I will want children. But I am also scared to death of it. I am 22 years old. I just hear women say some find they crash terribly bad and are set in relapse. Others are fine. I appreciate any and all thoughts.

I have FMS. I have 1 child so far. My pregnancy was amazing. I felt more normal pregnant then I ever did before or after. It was like the FM vanished. It was amazing! I almost wished I would have just stayed pregnant forever. Lol. I stopped all medication at that time. Unfortunately I did have to go back on meds after breastfeeding though.
