Hi! So I survived 2008/2009 and have been pain free from sciatica for a year now.
I've been jobless over a year now and have been searching for a new career. My issue is I may be fine for a few months and then I get hit wham with painful muscles and a "Foggy" head. All I can do is lay on a heating pad and take tramadol, advil and lyrica and wait for things to get better.
I'm so frustrated! I want to work again and certainly need to for financial reasons but what to do about those "poopie" days. I'll probably go back to my rheumatologist and see if she wants to increase lyrica or zoloft dosage.
I've been walking 3 miles 4 days a week and have built up leg and back strength but still can't lose weight. I'm afraid to increase my lyrica and zoloft dosage because it will certainly add to the weight problem.
Okay, I'll call this a "Mental Dump" post as I'm going on and on. I'd love to hear from anyone who is working and managing their fibro at the same time. PLEAE give me hope (LOL!)!
