Hi please help!

Hi, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia last week which is half a relief knowing what it is and half scary :yikes:
I am off sick at the moment but want to go back full time but my doc sees to think I will only be able to do part time which I cant afford. Has anyone else managed to hold down a full time job and if so do you have any tips?
I have been taking amytriptaline 75mg at night which helps with sleep but not the pain, I am now starting Lyrica 75mg at night as well which hopefully will help with the pain.
Sorry this is a bit of a miserable first email :crazy:

:wave: juejue :welcome: to the forum and to the world of fibro. There is a lot of advice and support on here, hopefully you'll find it helpful. It is possible to work with fibro as it seems to affect us all so differently. If you can get things under control, then it is possible to live a fairly typical life. I've put a linky on the NHS page about fibro treatment and meds to give you an idea of the numerous meds that are usually prescribed



It can be a bit of trial and error and take a bit of time to find the right mix of meds that works for you, but it can be done :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Anything else you want to know, just ask and we'll try to help you with it :hugs: :grouphug:

hi jue :wave:
good to have you with us
perhaps you could go back to work part time for a little time
and then build up to full time again :dunno:

there are a lot of fibro sufferers that do work full time
and a lot that have had to give up work altogether.
we are all different, and fibro affects us all in different ways to.

sadly i am one that is on the sick yet again :roll:
and not looking good for me going back.
try and pace yourself as much as possible with everything
you do, at home and at work.
hope you manage to get back to work soon
but don't rush it :hugs:
