I've had RA for 20 years. Recently I am in constant severe pain and xrays have shown severe degenerative change in both elbows with near complete loss of joint space. I'm really struggling to do simple tasks.
I'm working full time, which isn't helping but I can't afford not to work. I'm panicking and stressing about how I'm going to live if I have to stop working. I checked on universal credit and because of my previous tax year earnings I wouldn't be entitled to a thing. I couldn't afford to live even if I went part time.
Has anyone been in a similar situation?
