Hello to all of you..
I'm feeling quite upset currently and stressed out..was officially diagnosed with fibro by rhumy April 2013. I have had issues with health since 2008 when a disc went in my lower back, caused issues with right leg which was numb to my toe..I had decompression surgery, and a nerve root injection in my leg but still feel pain in it, an ATOS doctor once said that the reflexes are gone in my foot and leg..
Later in 2009 I had another disc go in my neck and I was going to be given surgery but on the day of the decompression/replacement surgery the hospital sent me home due to an error on their part..I was sent for emergency steroid instead while the op was relisted the next month, I changed my mind and bottled the surgery, just after this I had a baby...the unplanned pregnancy was ok but just after the birth I couldn't walk, my back was horrendous, worse than ever, it kept locking, I kept asking for help was put back on morphine patches, I tried for DLA was refused, and was still kept in the WRAG which I've been in since 2008....I've kept going, managing by sleeping, and looking for support wherever possible..I've had my MEDS increased bit by bit when last year the rhumy doubled the patches to 140mcg transtec bupronorphine..
I got a brilliant support worker and I applied for pip and my ATOS interrogation is this Thursday, I've just got some note from my gp which were sent to him from the back clinic, it says all sorts of rubbish, like one doctor at the hospital questioned wether my limping in 2013 was intentional, that I was basically just depressed and that I should be given counselling, and that I was aggressive, he also stated that he thought I could have polymyalgia (I was 32 at the time)...a letter from the rhumy states how I feel so much better and that I've been gardening! (I told her I've been sitting in the garden due to low vit d levels like she told me)
Has anyone else had similar put in records, has it harmed your case, I'm very worried that they will now think I'm lying and refuse me again...im not very strong and im sick of this illness being trivialised...xxxxxx
