Fibromyalgia Work Advice

We recommend having a discussion with your employer about your diagnosis and how this may impact upon your work.

Building Services

Your employer will not want to lose you, it is therefore within their interest to try and make some reasonable adjustments to make you be able to continue to work more comfortably.

We advise having some solutions in mind upon commencing discussions with your employer, this could be:

  • Reduced hours
  • Reduced number of days
  • Increased breaks throughout the day
  • Working sitting down instead of standing
  • Working day shifts instead of night shifts
  • Changing roles within the organisation.
  • Setback management
