Hello everyone, I am new to this Forum and would love your help please!
I have been on DLA with Fibro and other conditions for just under 6 years and during that time my fibro has def got worse, not to mention the other stuff I have!
A friend who also has fibro told me last week that during 2012, everyone on DLA is going to have a medical to see if they can come off DLA. Does anyone know if this is correct? If so where can I find out more info please?
I am worried sick about losing the DLA, as the car gives me a lifeline to the outside world! I don't get any other benefits so would really be stumped if I lose my car
I am concerned that a medical board would be like so many doctors and not believe in the condition of Fibro, so would assess me as physically able or faking it!!
It took me over 5 years to get assessed by a hospital rheumatologist and that was after changing my GP three times before I found one who would refer me to the hospital in the first place!
Any info or advice would be really welcome. Thanks!
