I was wondering how many people with this debilitating ailment work full time and what they do to make it through the day. I find it very hard! I have missed a lot of work. On the days that I do drag myself there, I find it hard to concentrate with the pain and discomfort. I am trying all kinds of different treatments (magnesium, adrenal supplements, vitamin b5, etc. as well as various pain meds), but so far nothing and absolutely nothing seems to help when the barometric pressure drops (I can predict the weather, as I'm sure most of us with fibro can). If I take painkillers, I'm walking around in a fog and that's no good at work either. I always wake up with pain and stiffness, but I do have some good days where the pain is kind of dull and I can live with that. The problem is - how can you work full time, when you only feel good part of the time and you can't predict when that will be???
