I've been living with the symptoms of Fibrmyalgia most of my adult life, but have only recently been diagnosed (about a month ago). Have been trying to manage stress in my job and pacing myself, but now got to the point where I have to admit to the fact that my job is too stressful and I'l have to stop wotking sooner. (I don't need to work and have decided to quit the end of this year.)
Yesterday, after a particularly long and busy week, I all of a sudden started to shake all over and then started to cry and cry for no reason at all. It didn't stop for 3 hours and a friend of mine called my husband to pick me up at work. I could not drive my own car and it feels as if my brain does'nt function well. Went to the doctor and he prescribed pills to make me sleepy and relax my muscles. I have to go back to work on Monday, but am so scared I will not be able to do my job (I am a teacher). What had happened to me yesterday? What do I do now?
