Hello All! I know its been forever since I've posted... but I'm really scared and hoping to find some comfort and advice. I just found out I'm pg!! Totally unplanned, but we are happy just the same... problem is... aside from the fact that I have VERY high risk pregnancies (6 months of bedrest with my son who is 18 mos, and my 12 year old daughter was born at 30 weeks), this will also be my first pregnancy endured with active RSD... with the others I had been in remission. Does anyone know someone who has survived a pg with RSD? I still haven't been to the Dr. (just found out and first appt avail is Mon) so I don't have a clue what they are going to do about my meds or if the OB will even be familier with RSD... Im terrified!! on top of extremely weepy and emotional Dizzy and ofcourse nauseaus!! Sick LOL! Any advice or shared experiences from others would really be appreciated... Thank you all so much in advance!!

Congrats Niki,

Worrying will only make you hurt worse. You can take it one step at a time and you have come to the right place for support. I'm sure that the dr. will try to adjust your medications and everything. Do you see a pain management dr?

Actually, i was just told that pregnancy can temporarily put RSD into remission. There is something with the hormone surge during pregnancy that seems to dull down the effects. This is one of the same reasons why teenagers have such a larger chance of being cured. (well plus they are just young, i know i know) So, i wouldnt worry too much this weekend and talk to your doctor about it on monday. Hopefully you have a doctor that is going to know what RSD is. If not i suggest finding someone who has seen it before, or has done some research.

That's what I understand also that pregnancy may put RSD into a temporary remission and come back full force after the pregnancy.
