Hi everyone after being a backroom sitter, ie watching the daily posts etc I am taking the plunge and effort tot introduce myself. I got diagnosed with Firbromyalgia 8 months ago and already suffer 3 prolapsed discs, spinal stenosis of the neck myelopathy nerve damage and osteoarthritis plus sciatica.
I am finding it harder as each day approaches, trying to be as they say "normal and independent" but sadly as we all know those days are now far n between. My medication consists of gabapentin amiltriptolene, diazapan and sleeping pills.
I am also in the waiting process of the Capita assessment after sending my forms February, but due to ATOS disappearance its now being done by Capita and hence a backlog.
I know my disability allowance is due to run out mid June so will they continue to pay until assessment or will it stop, like so many I am worried sick.
