Help with benefits please x

Hi, i have heard i can get some guidelines from here when applying for dla? I have been through the trauma of esa and got conflicting letters of reply so still awaiting the outcome of that.

Any help that can be given would be greatly appreciated, in so much pain i cant think straight let alone fill out this form!

Thanks and gentle hugs to all

  • Hello there Addy

    If you would like to email us on we will be happy to send you the Benefits and Work info sheets for free on ESA and DLA. They contain lots of helpful information on completing forms, assessments and appeals.

    I hope these will be helpful to you and if there is anything else we can help you with please don't hesitate to ask. We will do our best to help you as much as we can.

    Wishing you all the best with your claim.

    It might be worth popping along to have a chat with your GP to see if they can help you regarding your pain levels, you might need a bit more help to manage this. I hope your pain eases soon for you.

  • Hi

    thanks so much will email you now.

    Awaiting another appointment with GP but they dont really understand I think

    I was so lucky to have a temporary doctor that specialised in rheumatism and eventually diagnosed me but unfortunately she has now left :(

    We struggle on though!

    Thanks again

  • For others who might see this, please be aware that the FibroAction team is made up of volunteers who do not necessarily work Monday to Friday. So if you need guidelines urgently and haven't got a quick response (do make it clear in your email if it is urgent!), do bring it up with an Admin here as they may have details of another team member who could send out guidelines in an emergency.

  • Thank you Lindsey! :)

  • Thank you Lindsey,

    your response was very speedy

    There was no rush just inquiring sorry I did not make myself clear :)
