    I had to take a fuctional capacity evaluation test for my job. I have restrictions where I have trouble kneeling, crawling,climbing ladders, stairs, squating and crouching. I have FM, OA and many other problems. During the test I did fine for the crawling because of the carpet but I don't think it is a true test because where I work we have cement floors. Also the test was done in the afternoon where I was somewhat ok with my pain. Has anyone taken it and then lost their job? I am trying to get on ADA. Any suggestions?
    I work in a mill enviroment(paper) and work all three shifts sometimes 12's.(sometimes I can't give these away so I am stuck with them)

    Wish I could help. i had to take a mental function test & I'm awaiting results. It was about 5-6 hours worth of tests.

    My brain was fried afterwards.

    Don't think I could crawl very far, let alone work 12 hour shits.

    My thoughts are with you.
