Hey, I've just been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Hypermobility a couple of weeks ago after years of tests and appointments with the GP to find out why I was constantly tired and in pain. I'm asking for a bit of advice in regards to Fibromyalgia as I don't fully understand what it is and what I can do to help me from now on. My job is quite physical and causes a lot of flare ups, the specialist advised that I should maybe reconsider my position but my work place don't fully understand fibromyalgia either and potentially looking into redeployment for me. I've been put on amitriptyline to see if that will help and I'm off work whilst it gets into my system. A couple of weeks into the medication and I don't feel like it's helping enough
. Do I go back to work and just not take it or wait to see if I get redeployment and see if that helps. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
