Looking to reduce hours

I am seriously considering having to reduce my hours at work as my Fibromyalgia/Osteoarthritis worsens. I am really struggling (long hours averaging 50 per week). Trouble is, I cannot afford to reduce my hours and I'm not unwell enough for PIP (scoring 4 out of 8 points). The thing is, I am still very independent (I don't need help with anything) but I know I need a lot more rest as I am burning myself out. The flare ups are happening more and more as time goes by and I'm really struggling at times. Any advice?
