Hi this is the 1st time I have posted on here and it's taken a few guts to be honest? I applied for PIP at the end of July and I am having my assessment next Weds but they are coming to MY HOUSE and I really didn't expect that. Can anyone tell me what they will ask me? I havent been diagnosed with fibromyalgia but I have a lot of the symptoms of the illness. I suffer more with chronic pain in my lower back and my legs and feet and have been for the last 31/2 years. I am now on morphine patches and sertraline but I suffer from bad side effects from these after trying nearly everything else including gabapentin, amitriptylene, co.codamol, diclofenac, tramadol, and various antidepressants but I suffer from bad side effects with anything I take, I am not the same person I was 31/2 years ago I am now tired all the time, depressed, anti social, not eating virtually at starvation level, losing weight and in despair with myself, i feel as if I am in a fog sometimes and just need to sleep. I no longer remember what it feels like to be ' normal and feel well'. I have continued to work full time through all of this and i am now so worried about this meeting next week. can anyone give me advice, please please please?????
