Whether or not to work while suffering from Fibromyalgia is a very personal decision and will depend on the individual who suffers from the condition. Symptoms of fibromyalgia such as headaches, fatigue, and chronic pain can make it very difficult to continue working.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your health, please consult your doctor or local GP.

Create a daily routine that works for you

If you are finding that your daily routine at work is making your symptoms worse, speak with your employer to see if you can create a work routine that will help you cope with your symptoms. Having a routine that works for you will likely mean you enjoy work more and are more productive while working, making it beneficial for both you and your employer.

Ask for a flexible working schedule

To help deal with your pain and flare-ups, ask your employer if you can have a flexible working schedule that will allow you to work around your pain. Speak to your employer about the possibility of working from home when your pain increases. This will help you to cope better with the pain, while still being able to work in some capacity.

Take time to rest at work

It is important that you do not create unnecessary stress while at work by not taking time to relax. Make sure to take regular breaks throughout the day to give you some time to relax and unwind. Even as little as 10 minutes away from your desk will help you unwind and refocus.

Create a good working environment

If your office is humid or clammy, it could be contributing to your chronic pain. If this applies to you, getting a desk fan or asking to sit close to an open window could go some way to help cope with your symptoms.

Also, ensure that the chair you are sitting in is as comfortable as possible, there are options such as back supports that could help reduce your pain. Switching positions at regular intervals have also been shown to help.

Create a to-do list to help prioritize your work

Creating a do-to list will help you focus on what is important at work, so you can get more done in the available time. Having a to-do list will help keep you away from unwanted distractions and keep you as productive as possible while working.

If you suffer from fibromyalgia as a result of an accident or injury, you could be entitled to compensation. To find out more about whether or not you have a claim, get in touch with our expert team.
