  • I'm 27, I was diagnosed with Fibro at 15 and I have 3 kids (delivered number 3 just 7 weeks ago) but I'm not medicated, I won't let them give me all that crap. You can take Tylenol while pregnant for pain but your best bet is to start eating right. There are a number of books out there for how to eat when you have fibro, and they are all good. You'll notice a HUGE difference in your pain levels if you simply cut out things like white sugar and flour and focus more on fruits and veggies. I will say that each pregnancy was worse than the previous, but it's do able.
