CIDP excerbation

Hi Flower,

Since I returned to work I work less hours. I used to work 16 hour shifts 2xs per week call and another contingent nursing job. Anyway since I have been back to work I have been working with restrictions from my neurologist. They are that I work no more than an 8 hour shift at a time (so no call), and that I work part-time hours. I just went up to a full-time status, which is only 32 hours a wk. but only 8 hour days and no call and I quit the other job. I am just trying the 32 hour a wk schedule out. The less I work or stress myself the better I feel.

I just returned from vacation. I was not on my feet all day but was active all day, I had a minimal amt. of pain and numbness. As I sit here and type this I am having a great deal of pain and numbness in my legs but this is the 4th day in a row I worked and I am on my feeting all day. So I do think there is a direct correlation between hours running around working to hours not worked especially if you have a job that requires you to be on your feet.
