    Hi @begona, Yes fibromyalgia is a recognised medical condition here in the UK and any condition which requires the use of aids or for which you need help from another person will be recognised as a disability and can make you eligible for a disability benefit. We would need more information about you especially your age range to advise which benefit you could apply for. In the meantime welcome and feel free to post in the "ask a benefit advisor" section with information about your circumstances and someone will be along to help...

    Hi @begona welcome to the community, have you seen the benefits calculator? It takes about 10 minutes to find out what benefits you could be able to claim.
