Hello  i am Gary i have had fibro now for three yrs, I got it 6 mths after a triple heart bypass which went well, The after effects not so well, But still standing so thats a bonus. Most i believe caused through the tablets Asprin  which has now caused Gastro problems,and Gaberpentin in a high dose, which may cause me to lose my job . But hey still standing so thats a bonus...

Hi GaryArnold

I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? Welcome to the forum and it is wonderful to make your acquaintance. I have pasted you a link below to our mother site, FMA UK which hosts loads of useful Fibro information:

I am so genuinely sorry to read that you have been suffering and struggling so much and I sincerely hope that you can find some resolution and relief to these issues. I have pasted you a couple of GOV.UK links below pertaining to ESA and PIP which are disability benefits that you could apply for:

PIP is a disability available to apply for whether you are working or not:

gov.uk/pip/how-to-claim

ESA is a for financial support if you are unable to work:

I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck, and please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you
