Hi. I'd love to get to know how you cope with working and chronic pain, if you work.

      @remedy330 I did a ton of tracking, I tracked what I ate, drank, weather, activity, stress, menstrual cycles, literally everything, until I saw patterns and adjusted. I figured out I had a gluten intolerance and issues with nightshades. I found that heat works better than ice. I figured out that for me chiropractors are a life saver. And I figured that all out from tracking. It's a pain to keep up with but it helped in the long run.

      I'm still trying to find ways to cope....I went about 12 years being undiagnosed and my drs still don't have a clue about treatment for me😥

      I started a new job about 3 weeks ago, it is still kicking my butt. It's very physically demanding so lots of anti inflammatory meds and lots of rest in between work helps me.

      I have done so much physical therapy, and it helps so much. I take a few things to manage some of the extra stuff that goes with fibromyalgia. I take stuff to control muscle spasms and to help me sleep. I have also found that learning about how trauma effects the body also helps. I just recently started working full time again and it's an adjustment.

      I’m a teacher. I have 3 kids at home and one in college. I don’t take medication. I manage my symptoms with diet and exercise. When my neurologist first suggested fibro, I couldn’t find a rheumatologist who would see me. I found a pain clinic who had a fibromyalgia program. I did physical therapy and cognitive pain management therapy.
