I was diagnosed in 2005, prob due to car crash 26 years ago. I have had 5 or 6 bad flare ups over last 3 years, months off work due to deppression, fibro fog ruined my career in the NHS, I had a fall due to my knee givin way at the top of the stairs putting me in A+E, on crutches for 2 weeks with badly bruised knee. I came off crutches sat before we flew to greece for 14 day holiday. Whilst there i got shingles, Flare up of IBS, it was a nightmare, panic attack on the plane.. the whole 2 weeks was awful. I got home and was so ill, depression, fatigue and hurrendous pain in my legs and back.
The year after we went to greece again, we went with friends had a good holiday.. got back and it floored me... off work again with fatigue, pain...3 months it was bad. Then again they year after, went to greece i was fatigued on holiday the temps were 40 plus, i was drained... couldnt wait to get home, ill again to the point my gp told me i prob has MS !!! I was mortified, brain scan gave me all clear i was just having a flare up "a bad one" again... Im still working 40hr wks, could i get working disability? and work part time to take some strain off me... I cant afford to not work so thats not an option and every time off off work it costs me money and i get behind on bills.. I dont know what else i can do.
Any advise welcome xx
