Could constant stress mimic fibro, right down to the pressure points?
I love my job, most of the time, but do not get along with my boss. He is obviously OCD, among other things, and does little things all the time that make my job DIFFICULT. I am finding it hard to believe that he does not do these things intentionally, because he knows he has issues yet refuses to get treatment.
Everything I read about fibro says to try to reduce stress, stretch, eat right, etc. I'm eating well, I'm exercising with a long walk at least 5 out of 7 days... could it be that I'm just not relieving the stress? Obviously there are other stressors in my life, but this is by far the biggest one. Can stress overload actually cause fibro?
I think that a job change may be in order, but worry that the added stress will just kick everything into overdrive. I am so hesitant to change anything, because while I have been better lately I have also been worse. I don't want to go back there, for sure. My cautious personality is telling me to just hang on til I can't any more...but somedays, I just don't WANT to...
Any suggestions?? Send me some knowledge, please!! :)
