What do you when you are working and in a flare?
Schrode posted:
I started working as a seasonal part-time cashier to help my family, moneywise. For the first 3 weeks I was doing okay, just a some pain at the end of the day. Now I am in a fibro flare! It hurts just to stand up, let alone move. I get home from work and take a hydrocodone but it is not helping. I usually only take hydrocodone 3 or 4 times a month. I am resting when I can but we really need the extra money.

I'm sorry to hear that. We do what has to be done but it isn't always easy. I was able to get a different job inside the plant where I work with better hours. Make sure you get enough sleep and down time if you have to work. I hope things get better for you.
