Working and Migraines

Posted on March 28, 2018

"I suffer daily with dizziness and vertigo. I had to stop work in 2014 as I couldn't cope with the illness. My memory became poor and I physically couldn't move. Most days I get by now but still suffer the repercussions of living with migraines. Is there anyone who has had to stop work, if so how do you cope financially? Not sure how I can make things better for my partner as he is only bringing in a wage." -A member on MyMigraineTeam

On MyMigraineTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with migraines, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Work is one of the most discussed subjects.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about working with migraines:

What is your boss attitude towards your migraines and days off sick?

How much work do you miss on average from you migraines? Or How do you cope at work?

40 hour work week... is it doable?

Here are some conversations about working with migraines:

I worry I can't continue functioning at work.

I applied for FMLA time because I was getting major pushback from my boss every time I called in with a migraine and my boss still doesn't understand.

Ever since going on short-term medical leave, my migraines have gotten better and most of the people in my life have been supportive and have recognized, as I have, that the connection between my work life and my migraines is clear.

Can you relate?
