newly diagnosed with fibromyalgia

Hi, I've been diagnosed for six months. I have thought that I'm managing ok. I'm doing shorter hours at work & light duties. Yesterday had a major melt down --my legs were so painful I could hardly walk, I ended up going home early. I need help and advice on how to cope with this. I really don't want to give up and stop work. Please advise me.

Re: newly diagnosed with fibromyalgia

I haven't been diagnosed with FM yet, but I'm pretty much to the point where it'll be a "trash can" diagnosis. I'm presently on STD because my job requires me to sit pretty much for 8 hours and I can't do that. After 20-30 minutes I have to stand and walk for 10-15 minutes. There are other positions that would enable me to do what I need to do, but even after 5 years of employment their not willing to work with me, yet. I'm hoping once diagnosed I can have restrictions made up by the doctor.

ANYWAY; sorry for rambling/venting .. One suggestion would be to ask your doctor about if their is any medications or vitamin supplements to help reduce your symptoms so you can continue working. I hope you can get some relief so you can continue working.

Good luck and God bless.
