So I've been a waitress/bartender for the past 15/16 years and I also do hair on the side. These past few weeks I've been in excruciating pain and have missed so much work. Neuropathy, carpal tunnel and possibly fibromyalgia. I have three kids and it's the holiday season. I've had to cut back on my hours because of this pain. I don't know what to do!!!!! Any kind of work involves use of my hands so unless someone can hire me to be a social butterfly (which I would be amazing at) I'm so ________! Please if anyone has any ideas that could help me I'd appreciate it

Sounds like you are disabled actually. Maybe not long term but possibly short term. Benefits aren't much but anything helps.

Good luck with it. Hope it gets better!

Sounds like a disability to me as well why don't go to a doctor and get a check up where it states that and go to social services if they see that they have to entitle you disability I mean its not like you can work best you go and prove to them about your issue.

They draw your blood, filter out your plasma, and blood goes back into your system.

What state are you in?
why dont you file for workers compensation?
it sounds like you may be temporarily totally disabled.. in which case, you can get paid 2/3 of your income to sit on your butt and get treatment. and if you have short term disability through your employer, than can make up the other 1/3.

by the way, OP, are you self diagnosing yourself? have you had an EMG/NCV done to confirm carpal tunnel?

Just asking because alot of people think they have carpal tunnel but they dont.

Start an online consignment business and sell other people's things on eBay, Craigslist, etc.

If you have a large social media presence start a crowdfunding charity and people will send you money. I'm not a fan of them because many people lie and make up tales of woe to get cash rolling in. But people seem to throw money at anything these days. For example, a 30 year old girl claimed she was stranded and a supposedly a 27 year old homeless guy gave her $20 which he claimed was all he had. So the girl starts a crowdfunding campaign in his name to raise $10,000 to "reward" his generosity. To date the campaign has raised over $300,000.

Now for the rest of story...the entire campaign was fraudulent. It was fabricated and designed solely to enrich the lives of this couple. It worked. Beware of crowdfunding stories.

I actually saw the original story on FB awhile back, however, I didn't know that it was a scam. Wow I'm going to google that right away.

Other than the carpal tunnel, a candida outbreak might be the main cause of the other symptoms. Because I've seen videos of people claiming that their nerve pain subsided after a candida cleanse. I'm not 100% sure, however, it's worth checking out if you have time. Wish you the best!

No quick fix other then dumping what you have into a investment and hoping for the best. You could ask for donations. I'm sure this pain didn't just start yesterday. Have you every done anything about it before? You will have to tough it out for your kids during the holidays and then figure out what kind of assistance you can get after you've confirmed your diagnosis.

Not finding the scam part on that, seem to be all legit! Is this the one you're saying is the scam couple???
