i was speaking to my mom the other day and she mentioned that my condition when I was younger was Juvenile spondylarthropathies. Or something of the sorts (I've not got a clue how to spell it)
Anyway having looked up what it is and the symptoms I have realised that I am still getting some of these pains described. Everywhere I look at this, it's saying that it's under 16s that get this, I am 30 now so what would the condition be now?
I am waiting for an appointment to go to the hospital to see the orthopaedic as my knee keeps giving out and I have had to resort to ordering a walking stick to walk round on and walk round on a crutch until it arrives.
She used to claim dla for me when I was a kid, and I've been thinking about re claiming now as I find it hard to walk around the house let alone anywhere else now (also includes my bike sadly) luckily I only work a few hours a week but even that's hard for me as I'm on my feet all day. (I work in a shop so can't sit down either)
To be honest I don't know how the process is with dla or pip whatever it is and I am scared that they will turn round and call me a liar due to my age and the fact that I don't look like I have a disability of any kind. What would you guys suggest?
Thanks for any help
