Re: chronic pain and pregnancy

I went through 2 pregnancies while dealing with Chronic Pain. One 20 yrs. ago and one 12 yrs. ago. My pain is in my knee and hip joints, so pregnancy was hard, because of all the gained weight it caused alot of pain on my knees. Also since my hip bones didn't work right, they never gained the "elasticity" that a woman gets while in labor, which allows her hips to widen and open up. Needless to say after 26 hrs. of labor I had an emergency C-section. With my second son I had a planned C-section. I also had to restrict a good deal of my pain meds while pregnant....what mama takes baby takes. Narcotics due cross the Placenta.

So thats it for me. Welcome to the Boards by the way. I hope you find peace and comfort amongst all of your peers.

Re: chronic pain and pregnancy

Have you tried acupuncture or other non-drug therapies? Also, have you had your vitamin levels checked, especially D and B-complex vitamins? I would never have believed that my pain levels would respond so much to vitamin deficiencies, but once mine were corrected (after years of dealing with incredible nerve pain,) I feel like I've been given my life back. It is absolutely in your best interest to have your doctor check these vitamin levels.
