Stu....Having fibro doesn't always mean that you can no longer work.

Some people can manage their fibro and continue to work, others are not.

Some people have other illnesses that along with fibro make it very hard for them to work.

What makes you ask?

Expect the worst in life you won't be disapointed and you'll be prepared!

I work. Couldn't be without it, it's like my me time away from home and family life.
Fibro will literally have to take me off my feet, or get me sacked before I'd take on the stress of trying to get on benefits!!!

Hi, I get a really sore and inflamed throat with swelling of the glands. The consultant said its a fibro symptom and nothing can be done as I can't take antibiotics or penicillin. It flares up and down. As to working with fibro, I work 25 hours a week and care for my hubby as he has multiple health conditions. Life is great if you don't weaken!!! :crazy:
There are these three things that remain: faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is LOVE.

Just a thought: have you had your thyroid checked out?

Stu why have you quoted your post from 16th January??? There had been a few replies in response to the question when you first made it.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 5years ago and I have not as yet come to terms with the pain it causes.
I've tried acupuncture, relaxation and numerous pills, but when I have a "flare up" it is so painful and lasts so long, I think it's never going away. This time, I'm now in my 5th week of all over pain. This time it's my neck and throat causing the most trouble. My GP says there's nothing wrong with my neck, but the pain persists. It goes up into my chin and face. My lips are dry and I generally feel like staying in bed till it goes! I'm sure there are others out there just as bad and that is what makes me get up and try to keep going.

Fibro affects people in different ways, I still work albeit slightly less hours than I used to I do 24.5 hours a week instead of the 27.5 that I used to, both my schools are very good at trying to help keep me there, I was able to change schools to ones that can accommodate my needs better than the one i was at, now I do 5 lunch times where i can sit and supervise if i feel the need and i only do one playtime a week and 2 lunchtimes out side where i cant sit if im tired, as opposed to 5 playtimes and 5 lunchtimes where i couldn't sit at all.
