My migraines have steadily increased in last few years and having around 3/4 week. Been off work since February this year as can't control them. I have tried all usual tablets and currently trying Gabepentin. My employer has completed final formal attendance meeting and I wondered whether I could push for early Ill health retirement even though my union keeps telling me that they won't look at it as I am too young and there may be a cure in the future?. . (could be a cure for any disease surely in the future). I saw rheumatologist this week who gave me fibromyalgia leaflet and is doing lots of blood tests as I have hypothyroidism, b12, and primary biliary chirossis. She is looking for any other anti autoimmune diseases. I am struggling just being alive (don't want to sound like I'm a drama queen but even when I don't have a migraine I have a constant drunk feeling). I know it depends on the individual pension scheme but I can't believe that I would be automatically turned down because of age and migraine not being serious enough like cancer or such like. Any thoughts? Thank you.
