Can I claim PIP to help me pay for fibro treatment therapy?
I have Fibromyalgia, I was diagnosed with it 4 years ago when I saw a radiologist at the hospital. I manage my pain with no meds but get regular massage therapy to help ease it and also I use an Actipatch to relieve the pain. I have been told by a friend that I could claim PIP to help me pay for the treatment therapy as the Fibro affects my day to day life a lot , Does anyone know if this is true as I have been in touch with the DA office and they say I will lose my other amount that I get for a problem I have had with my back for many years . I am getting low rate personal at the moment . Can anyone advise me please as I was put off claiming because I can not afford to lose the money I get as I cannot work with my condition . my husband claims pension for us both so we live on that now . Any advice would be gratefully received . Dee x
