    Hi Susan,

    i think you might need to list the medication you are on and then people can respond to how each one affected them.

    im sorry you are struggling. It's not fun at all. I bet it's your meds.

    hope you feel better quick

    Hi there, yes sounds like to much medication. Might need to discontinue one med at a time. Only familiar with the mirt...

    I'm so sorry they kept putting you on medication, it's insane I think.

    well, anyhow it done and now for a good new doctor to get you off as many as possible. Remeber that these types of medication can turn on you with years of use and actually give you anxiety and depression. Your body becomes immune to any benefit that they might have had. My doctor calls it poop out. Once poop out happens, it like taking nothing. But never go off these on your own with out a special chart on how to wean down.

    i wish you luck and hang around here people here are real helpful

    I wanted to mention there is a good site called has a chart that helps with reduction. Are you from the UK? I'm in America, so I'm not sure how the laws work for being sick and getting paid or not getting paid ect....

    it wouldn't hurt to take a day off, would it? I mean the back pain alone must be debilitating you have a system of disability?

    if you're  from the states excuse me for being stupid.

    i think you might be looking at a lengthy reprieve from work. I don't know but it seems like you need to take care of your health number one first

    good luck

    Hello Susan.

    I don't know if I can help but I am certainly going to try.

    Firstly..remember that you do not have to do anything you do now want to do.

    If you make it to your front door and feel you can't go further,then you can go back. If you are even braver and make it to work but can't go in,you don't have to. If you manage to get into work and start work but feel you are not ready for this,then you can grab your coat and go home.....but just may get there and get absorbed in work and the day will just as it used too..and you will be fine. You never know. Just be mindful that you don't have to prove can do what you are capable of and nothing more xxx

    If you feel better from the virus then go back. Its just the anxiety making you feel worse about things. you have had too long to dwell on things at home.
