How to keep working when you have chronic pain


  • You’ve been living with pain for a long time, and you’ve probably heard the phrase, “I can’t find anything wrong with you,” far too many times. You’ve known all along, though, that your pain is real.
    And now, you’ve finally learned that your pain has a name: It’s called neuropathic pain. How will this diagnosis affect you? Will you be able to keep working?
    This lesson will help you understand:

    Whether your current job is right for you
    If changes can be made to your job and workplace to let you keep working
    If you should move to another job
