I was diagnosed with fibro in may 2014 & since jan of last year i have been sick off work on many occasions and i get a viral and it makes me lose my voice 1 min it can be laryngitis and the next it can be tonsilitis. It started every couple of months and now since aug 2015 its every month its happening. I got called into an attendance review meeting at work and they are aware of my fibro and have been great so far with reducing my hours and accomodating me as best as they can. But in the meeting they stated if i had any time off from nov (the meeting) to March 31st 2016 4 months if i did then they would need to take the next step. I have been back to my gp and explained and she has referred me to ENT for a camera up my nose and in my throat but she feels its fibro related. However my problem is my appt at ent isnt untill 23 feb 16 and on 30th Dec i was due in work for 1 shift and yep you guessed it i had no voice my dr gave me a fit note as it was laryngitis but because i work taking calls there was nothing work could let me do so said i would need to take the day as sick. So i am now awaiting another attendance meeting and im expecting a verbal. And now yes you guessed it not even 2 weeks after being off sick i have it again a mad cold and lost my voice and i cant be off work. I love my job and dont want to lose it. I was thinking shall i get a sicknote untill after my appt at the hospital because 1 long sickness is better than 5/6 seperate occasions? Or is there no way i can say its mitigating circumstances untill its been investigated because at this rate im not gonna have a job. Please help me thanks
