I know a little of how you feel right now, I have went through similar not that long ago. You can appeal the tribunals decision thats what I did, well not me exactly I had a representative from my local council help me. If I were you I would find out if your council provide a similar service. I had no idea about benefits until I started getting the symptoms of Fibro three years ago and found I could no longer work, if it hadn't been for a friend who works for the council telling me about the service I don't know where I would be..... You could also try the Citizens Advice. I hope and pray that everything turns out well for you, as you are finding though it is a long hard struggle....

Gentle hugs xxxx


Hi sueuk,

I believe the only rule is that you must have had a condition for three months and expect it to go on fur at least six months more, to put in a new claim.

My best advice tough is to go to the main Fibro Action site, look at the Benefits and work link, in the Benefits section, then email FA for any guides or forms you may want.

You don't need to join B and W because FA has a professional membership, so they will email anything you need to you, free.

happy hugs, kate :)


Thank-you guys I really appreciate it xx Do you have a link to the site please kate
