Excellent article: Pregnancy & Fibromyalgia: Lessons Learned and Other Random Thoughts

ButYouDontLookSick has a marvelous article up today: ButYouDontLookSick.com : Pregnancy & Fibromyalgia: Lessons Learned and Other Random Thoughts.

I’m in the “0.08% chance of that happening” group, like the author. I was sick all the time throughout my one successful pregnancy. Yes, all day, every day, from about a week after conception ’til months after the delivery, because it took that long before all the hormones settled back down. My tummy hasn’t been the same since—I get sick to my stomach far more easily now than I ever did pre-pregnancy.

I also felt seriously misled, as I’d heard about this “morning sickness” thing, but all the time sickness? Nobody talks about that!

That was in 1990, and I wasn’t diagnosed with FMS until 1993. I doubt my trouble had as much to do with fibromyalgia as to the fact that I’ve had hormonal problems (PCOS, particularly) since hitting puberty. My body just doesn’t like high hormone levels.

Anyway, head on over to ButYouDontLookSick and comment. They’ll be happy 🙂
