Suffering from fibro and taking a lot of meds for it (lyrica is one of them), I get night jerks which keep me awake and my memory is shocking. I can’t remember when my daughter has training or football after asking her repeatedly. I have to write everything down. There was one bank holiday week and I hadn’t got enough of my meds to get me through the weekend. I thought I was going to die with the pain and nearly drove every one in the house insane because I was so aggressive. I have shooting pains down arms, legs and fingers. I cannot get out of the bed in the morning and when I do I have to walk sideways down the stairs. Does anyone know if you can get long term sick benefit from this condition? I am living in Ireland and don’t know anyone here that has it or is out sick with it. If there is anyone who is reading this could relate to me or answer my sick benefit question this would be great!
