Has anyone had a baby whlie suffering with fibromyalgia?
Please help as i am 27 yars ols and have had fibro all my life, My doctors are not very understanding and i need to know how you can go without any medication while being pregnant. If i do become pregnant, i dont want to harm my baby........i dont know what to do, please help me.

Have you considered consulting with a holistic doctor? You could also go to the National Fibromyalgia Association website and find a more fibro friendly doctor. Accupuncture is certainly another option for pain relief. I have used accupuncture and found it very effective. I hope you find some of the suggestions I have offered. Take care.

Thankyou for that, i will check that website. The thing is i'm in England and we have to use the Dr's that are in our area. I have tried accupuncure and it actually makes me feel worse. My back and legs get very sore and its very uncomfortable.

Accupuncture will make you very uncomfortable initially. Usually you feel worse the next day than when you went in. That is a normal reaction that will lessen over time. In my own case, the benefits have outweighed the aftermath of feeling worse. I wish I had some better suggestions for you but I think a holistic doctor is probably the best option. I know the health care system in England is not what we enjoy here. I wish you the very best in your search.

Thank you again. I am trying to find a good private doctor here so wish me luck! I tryed accupunture for 4-5 yars and i did not benefit at all. I am really worried as i am on very strong pain killers and anti-depressents to help me sleep at night. i went to holiday and left my sleeping tabs at home and i did not sleep a wink for 14 nights. It is worrying. My husband does not want to understand the pain that i am in and he wants a baby asap. i'm just scared.

Have you thought about sharing this site with him? There is so much good information on this site. And, this discussion board offers so many different points of view about how hard this syndrome is to handle. It might make him more accepting of your situation. Afterall, it is just not the pregnancy you need to get through. Raising a child with good health can be challenging never mind adding FMS to the situation. Take care.
