    I've had trouble with urinary tract infections as of late. Not sure what the cause is, however when this occurs, my fibro goes into overdrive. I slept for 36 hours straight this past weekend due to this!

    I am getting really concerned about my job. I have had to be out frequently. Although I have gotten recent kudos for the work I do, I feel as though I am pushing my luck. Not sure what to do from here. I guess I should pursue FMLA but I am not familiar with it. Any help welcome!

    YES, Whenever I have an infection,cold, migraine it flares which makes everything worse. When I had my knee replacement last yeat I had a fare for 2 months that was awful. All I did was cry...ass if the knee surgery wasnt enough.

    for me it's always worse when I'm sick.
