    Did anyone find that their symptoms worsened after giving birth?

    I never had many symptoms (just occasional tingling in my hands/feet) until after my son was born. Most of my symptoms began when I was 3-6 months postpartum.

    Now I have episodes of dizziness, severe leg pain and shoulder pain, to name a few. I was just wondering if this was common or unique to me?

    Yes, I go fibro after birth of 1st child; but it was the birth of my second child that put me over the edge!! Many fatigue, back pain, IBS, depression and headaches!
