Question Work issues related to TMJ

I kdjsjsnnnfddd
Hi TMJD suffers,

I am so glad I found this site. I was browsing the web and ran across this website and realized I wasn't alone with TMJD. This is my first time posting so you will have to bear with me. I am 33 years old and was dignosed with TMJD about 3 months ago. I recently was off of work due to migraines/headaches that I have on my left side of my face every morning. I recently went back to work doing half days. And now this week I was unable to work due to the pain on my left side. I am so afraid that I am going to lose my job over this. Does anyone out there have any advise for me? Please help!

Re: Work issues related to TMJ

Hi, how long have you been at your job? I would suggest looking at the Dept. of Labor's website. You may be covered under the federal law, FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act).
Hope this helps.

Re: Work issues related to TMJ

Thanks, for you response. I was on a FMLA leave and I felt like my employer had forced me to go back to work before I was ready. So that is when I did go back for 1 week doing half days. But then was unable to go this week. Still need more help.
