I'm new to this site and have only just been referred to the Rheumatology Dept after suffering with pain in hands and hip.
Anyway, I wonder if anyone may have any thought to my question as regards ESA.
I have been claiming ESA for approx 18 months due to Depression and Anxiety. And normally go along to one of the medical assesments every 6 months. This time round however, just as I got the form I had had my blood tests done and Doctor advised he was refering me to Rheumatology.
He said I should include this information in my assesment form which I did.
I had to return the form by 16thSept and have heard nothing since!
Has anyone else had this happen? Is it because of the RA? And do you think I'll be called up anytime soon?
I know I could ring them, but I'm not good on the phone at the best of times and everything is such an effort at the moment.
On another point....I can't believe the tiredness and fatigue I feel, as well as the aches and pains!
I know there are others out there (after finding this site) who are suffering more and hello to all of you, I hope you're having a good day x
Thanks for taking the time to read this
