Hi everyone - I was just wondering if anyone has any tips on the work capability assessment interview. I have looked through the site but have found older posts and wasn't too sure if things may have changed, albeit ever so slightly, since the days of the brutal way they were decided. I have a myriad of health problems, Fibromyalgia, arthritis, Raynaud's, hypothyroidism, c.o.p.d., anxiety, depression, chronic back pain (for which I have had 4 procedures for) but didn't even score 1 point. I take among many medications, morphine 4 x daily for the pain. The assessor thought I was fine as I retrieved my mobile out of my hand bag and answered it. My son was being looked after by a friend and she had called me, so naturally, I feared there was a problem so I answered it. He wrote this action in great detail as I received a copy of the transcript.
I would really appreciate any thoughts or suggestions to get through this interviews as I am feeling completely overwhelmed by it all at the moment. Kindest regards, Ashely
