I have had a fair bit of time off work over the last couple of months and my manager has mentioned a referral to occupational health, as it's likely to be triggered anyway by the absences. I haven't had to go through anything like this before, and wondered if anyone had experience they could share? I'm currently waiting for a gastro appointment in August and at the moment am being able to work the odd day at home which helps, but it's not every week and so I'm still suffering a bit at work. My main problems are pain in the lower abdomen, fatigue and aches and pains throughout my body. It can be hard to sit at a desk all day as I get very uncomfortable on some days, and some days i'm so foggy my concentration goes and I'm no good to anyone. It's very varied and can last a short time or whole weeks at a time. Has anyone had anything similiar? I wonder what options in terms of managing the symptoms around work there are?
