I have psoriatic arthritis,I was under a rhumy for three years but when I could not tolerate his meds. he signed me off and suggested the pain clinic,who in turn gave me a tens machine and also signed me off to my GP.So I still have arthritis but no support and no meds. I was on ESA but that finished in January and because I have no up to date records I don't think I will get it again.I now have no income,my husband has a state pension (£107. a week) and we are expected to live on that.
Sorry to moan but having payed into the system for 45 years I am feeling hard done by.I would love to work but with my health issues,I also have O.Arthritis and a very under active thyroid. And the fact that I shall be 60 in a few months. A job in my area so like a pipe dream.
