For years I had been going to the doctors for different complaints, blood test after blood test, scan after scan to be told oh theres nothing wrong with you, they just gave me something for my complaints. A few years ago I changed to a different doctors surgery, my new doctor was very supportive and I was finally diagnosed with fybromyalgia, I also have dyspraxia, asthma, dyslexia and rheumatoid arthritis at the bottom of my spine. I take loads of different painkillers, anti depressants, nothing seems to help, I get up tired, go to bed tired, fall asleep all the time, I work 3 hours a day cleaning, and that kills me, the job centre wants me to find a full time job but I physically am not able to, I was wondering if I could get pip or even if they recognise fybromyalgia as a proper illness? I just need help, I'm at the end of my tether.
