This illness came about at a particularly stressful time on my job last fall. I had severe FM and CFS since last September. The last few months my symptoms have been getting better. The most relief was when the headaches left - eyes stopped hurting - could think straight. Last week again I had a particularly stressful week at work and all of my symptoms BAM returned. I have had my job for 5 years and got a degree to get into this field, but now I am afraid it is ruining my life!!! It is the only thing I have ever done besides cashiering/waitressing jobs to get through school and my body could never do that right now!! It is frustrating because everyday I am trying to control the stress... trying to blank out my mind... trying to take walks every once in a while. But now I can't get rid of the headache/eyeache/dizziness... once it starts it take a while to make it go away. And then that of course affects my work which is going down hill. I am thinking I may have to change jobs for my health sake, but it may be stressful just starting a new job for a while. I am confused.
