I have fibro and arthritus all thru my back. Have had for years now.
The meds I was on controlled it pretty good for about the last 3 years, but lately it is all returning.
I work as a machinist, 4 10hr days. on my feet on concrete all day.
The fatigue and pain in the mornings and in the afternoon are getting unbearable.
I'm on hydrocodone tramadol and gabipentin for the pain.
zynax and zoloft for the depression and anxiety that comes with it.
The worst thing I am dealing with is just getting to work every morning with the pain and fatigue.
Some days I just caint make it in.
Some days I sleep most of the day.
I'm thinking of filing for disability, but do not know if I would be approved.
If I apply for disability, I can not work while I wait for an answer.
What is a guy to live on in the mean time.
Any input would be appriciated, all this just adds to the depression.
