DIANNE - December 30

I WORKED AS AN RN FOR YEARS NOW I AM HAVING INCREASED DIFFICULTY BECAUSE PAIN IS INCREASING AND I HAVE TERRIBLE FIBROFOG. THE GIRLS AT WORK ARE VERY INTOLERANT AND I HAVE BEEN SUBJECTED TO A LOT OF ABUSIVE COMMENTS, INSULTS AND ALSO BEING REPORTEDF OFTEN TO MY SUPERVISOR FOR VARIOUS REASONS. I DON'T WANT TO DO IT ANYMORE. I HAVE DEPRESSION, MY SELF ESTEEM IS AT ITS LOWEST AND I WANT TO APPLY FOR DISABILITY, WHAT IS MY BEST ROUTE TO TAKE.

 

RALPH - December 27

hello dianne,
i was hit with this fibro fog in early november after coming off of neurontin for pain. i thought it was associated with that medicine. i went back to the neurologist and he said it was not. my fibro fog is NOT forgetfulness or confusion. my fibro fog is feeling like i am disconnected from reality altogether, almost like i am in a dreamlike state. at times i have felt like i was going to literally pass out. it never happened though, thank God. i feel like i have that weird feeling from medicines such as: allergy meds, benzos(ativan, valium, klonopin, etc.). it is very scary at times. i often wonder if my head will clear out and come back to normalcy(sp?). Please scroll down and read my post further down this page and possibly page two. the headings are about fibro fog and weird feeling in the head like passing out. read what i have written and other peoples responses. my neurologist told me the feeling in my head could also be related to migraines without the pain and panic attacks. he told me to see a psychiatrist. i will pray for you and hope things get bearable. for me some days are bearable and somewhat pleasent and other days it comes back with a burning vengence. i always look back at my childhood and teenage to early 20 years. i remember days of health and carefree attitude. i miss those days and i think they are gone forever. Hear's to a Happy Healthy New Year. could you please write me back on this post to let me know what fibro fog feelings you have in your head. it might help me out too. Thank You and God Bless You. Sincerely Ralph

I too have the fibrofog. It is one of the most troubling problems of the fibromyalgia. It is hard for me to get through the day at work, and I work part time. Hang in there ard keep the faith! I know sometimes it's hard. God Bless

Firs & foremost your MD must beleive in your disease & second find an attorney that has handled CFS/Fibro cases with success before. You will be in for a fight from your employers disability insurance carrier & Social Security but you can win. Use the various fibro networks to find an attorney, interview severa of them. Let us know how you do,

Hi Dianne. To get disability your doctor has to go along with it, it will make it easier. Get your diagnosis and keep your records and talk to your doctor about the problems you are having at work since it is now affecting your job and then you will need to see a psychiatrist because disability will send you there anyway so get a start on that. There they can help you with your anxiety and depression and get the paper work going. I will tell you it will take 18 mos. or longer to go through the system, don't give up on it and do your research. Good Luck

About 5 years ago at age 45, I was diagnosed with ADD. My fibromyalgia has been fairly mild (thank you God) until recently. I do have problems with fibrofog but I noticed that if I go off my ritalin, it is worse. I am not suggesting that ritalin is the answer, but if you have an understanding doctor, you might ask about it.
