I have fibromyalgia sjorgrens and degenerative arthritis. I have all over pain and as soon as i put a foot down my feet and knees and hips really hurt. I lost my mobility and was reassessed. I have a tribunal next week. I cant walk a metre without pain. I am so lost in all of this.  I understand frim what ive read its also happening to others.  My point is i hurt 24/7 a few simole steps caus3 me much pain.

    Hi @Ghostequinox1705 and welcome to the community. I'm sorry to hear you're having such a bad time, but I'm glad you've come to us for support. Now, I am not a benefits expert, but we have people here who are and I have no doubt that they will be in touch with you soon.
    Please keep in touch, in the meanwhile.

    hi Ghostequinox and welcome

    With your tribunal next week there is little that we can do for you

    have a look at the B&W self test

    your job is to show that you meet the criteria for an award

    if you have no award in payment then you can reapply straight away there is no waiting time


    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
