    Hi Kayla,

    Congratulations on your great news.

    I. Don't know if you use Facebook but there are a few support groups for people with CRPS , if you don't get a reply here might be worth giving them a try.

    I'm sure many will have fell pregnant at some stage, you never know the changes your body will go through might have positive effect on your other symptoms.

    Good luck and you get get some replys that help.

    HI KAYLA2211,CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR 1ST PREGNANCY! IT IS GREAT YOU HAVE MANAGED TO STOP ALL YOUR MEDS! I DID NOT,BUT CUT DOWN TO BARE MINIMUM! MY BABY A BEAUTIFUL BOY WAS BORN ON DUE DATE,A HEALTHY,WITH NO WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS WHATSOEVER,SCORING A NILL ON "WITHDRAWAL CHECKLIST! HE WAS 8LB121/2OZ! YES I WAS IN PAIN A LOT AT END OF PREGNANCY,I DEVELOPED SYNPHISIS PUBIS,(PUBIC BONE RUBS TOGETHER DUE TO LIGAMENTS BEING TOOOOO LOOSE!) I WOULD RECOMMEND YOU GET PLENTY OF REST AS STRESS WILL BE YOUR ENEMY WITH CRPS! AS I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE YOUR CRPS HAS AFFECTED YOU,AND YOUR AGE,IT IS A BIT HARDER TO ADVISE.BUT THE MORE YOU WORRY,THE WORSE YOU MAY BECOME......STRESS!!THEĀ  YOUNGER YOU ARE,TE BETTER YOUR CHANCES,AS WE ALL HEAL BETTER THE YOUNGER WE ARE! IF YOU HAVE TO HAVE A BLOOD TEST,PLEASE ASK THEM TO USE A PEDIATRIC SIZE NEEDLE AS EVERY INJECTION IS ANOTHER "INJURY!" MAYBE YOU COULD GET A MEDIC ALERT BRACELET,SO YOUR DR,S CAN SEE YOU HAVE THIS AWFUL DISEASE. I WOULD ADVISE AS YOUR BODY CHANGES TO USE A WHEELCHAIR AT END OF PREGNANCY,AND IF FEET/LEGS SWOLLEN,PUTTING THEM UP WHILST SITTING WILL NOT HELP MUCH BUT LAYING DOWN WITH THEM RAISED ABOVE YOUR HEART WILL! I KNOW AS I HAVE PROVED THIS NUMEROUS TIMES! OBVIOUSLY GIVING BIRTH WILL BE AN "INJURY HUN,BUT TRY MAYBE A WATER BIRTH SO YOUR MUSCLES ARE WARM AND RELAXED.TRY TO AVOID AN EPISIOTOMY,BUT IF NEEDED,OR YOU TEAR,OR EVEN IF YOU HAVE NO OPTION THAN TO HAVE A C SECTION,VITAMIN C WILL HELP AVOID A SPREAD.THIS IS A WELL KNOWN FACT WITH PREVENTATIVE TREATMENT,500MG DAILY NORMALLY,BUT AFTER A MAJOR SURGERY,1500MG! PLEEEEEASE JUST ENJOY YOUR PREGNANCY,AND WATCHING YOUR BUMP GROW.CRPS DOES NOT STOP YOU FROM BEING A GREAT MOTHER! IF YOU NEED ANYMORE ADVISE MY LOVE,PLEASE CONTACT ME BACK ON HERE.I AM QUITE POORLY AT MOMENT,BUT WILL KEEP CHECKING MY EMAILS.I AM EXTREMELY EXPERIENCED ON CRPS AND RUN A SUPPORT GROUP,SO BEING AN ADMINISTRATOR HAS MADE ME HAVE TO LEARN A LOT MORE THAN MOST.I AM PREPARED TO HELP YOU AT EVERY TRIMESTOR OF YOUR PREGNANCY MY LOVE.WE CANĀ  DO THIS TOGETHER IF YOU WOULD LIKE.AGAIN CONGRATULATIONS,AND REMEMBER,NO WORRYING.......STRESS WILL BE YOUR WORSE ENEMY!!! TAKE CARE SWEETIE,LOVE SLEBBY33

    Hello Kayla

    My name is Michelle

    Me and my husband are expecting our 3 child together. I have had Red for a little over 2 years now and the pain has gotten so much more worse with baby number 3 on the way.I'm leaving the hospital being discharged because there is nothing else they can do but prescibe me nerve pain medicine that is safe for the baby or so they came to be. I have developed rsd due to trauma to right arm on Jan 10 2013

    But late diagnosis in April 2014 because the State of OK is poorly educated on the disease.I have been dealing with the over wide spread because it is passed irresponsible
