Went back to docs on Friday, as i have been problems with my right leg, it started about a week ago, my foot felt swollen and it felt like i was walking on pins, then on Thursday my leg went numb from the hip down. Saw a GP i do not usually see, she was very good and really seemed to know a lot about the fibro. She felt the problem with my leg is caused by the fibro and has put me Gabapentin, not overly keen on taking it as i hate feeling drowsy. i have to go back and see her in a fortnight to see how things are going. My leg is till giving me problems and walking is proving difficult. On top of that i am having physio due to a frozen shoulder that i go from a fall. the pain from that is horrendus and is affecting my whole arm, Have to go back and see him next week, if its no better he is going to arrange a scan, as he thinks i might have torn something when i fell. So what with one thing and another its never ending.To top it off i get a letter from ATOS with regards to my ESA, which i have been on for almost 2yrs now. Have been in touch with welfare rights to come and help fill it in. GP said she would support it, do i ask her for a letter, or will they get in touch with my GP? what else can i do to support my claim? I an so worried i will not get through and they will make me go back to work, i know i can't i am lucky if i get 2 good days a week,. Any advice please?
