Have any of you been diagnosed with fibro and continued working? If so, how did you cope? By about the middle of my shift, my groin muscles are so contracted I cannot walk upright. I need to work of course. I have a son in college and 2 daughters and a grandbaby living with me. I have gone to working agency so that I can take a day off if I have a flair. I have applied for a teaching position at Western Business College teaching in the Medical Assistant program, but it doesn't pay very well. My doc has told be that I am going to have to leave the bedside
I need some suggestions. At first they thought I might have MS but my MRI was negative and my neurologist said that I am having way too much pain for MS even though I am loosing muscle strength and getting the contractures.
I am just very frustrated because I had a really good job working L&D, loved it, and now I am working pediatrics, (Shriners, Providence Child Center, etc.) and love my kids. I guess I am just really down right now. I had my life all planned out, but like John Lennon says "Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans".
Thanks for letting me vent..
