I got to where I couldnt walk, and was talking about going on disability. May I ask if you have tried CYMBALTA? I was in so much pain i couldnt take it any more. My Dr. put me on this and it was my miracle drug..I can now walk and work.. Thank GOD......

I can indentify with you taking a leave.  I really wanted to retire before this school year, but I keep pushing myself.  My feet hurt so bad when I get home of the afternoon that I have to put them up for a little while.  I'm also so exhausted that I usually fall asleep as soon as I sit down and get quiet. 
I wish I could get up the nerve to quit my job, but I'm so afraid of the future and what it may bring. That's why I keep pushing myself.
While your on leave, take it easy and rest up.  Maybe you will get to feeing better.  I hope so.
God Bless!
Of all the things that I have lost, I miss my mind the most!!!!
