Hi there, I came across your website and thought it might benefit me to actually find out things I'm unsure about, I have sivere Fibromyalgia and Costochondritis I'm in receipt of lower rate Pip, but nothing else this past 3 years! And never looked to see if I'm entitled to any benefits?! Until I saw this and decided to join to find out. Thank you in advance.

    Hello @MattBelGem Welcome pleased to meet you.

    Have you seen our posts and threads on What Benefits Am I Entitled to. Also may I add I am sure one of the team or the community may be able to assist or advise you.

    I hope that helps. Also have a look around for anything you require on information on your conditions. Just a suggestion.

    Take care

    Hello @MattBelGem and a warm welcome to the community. 
    Otherwise I'm just backing up the spiceman here. This is a list of categories which you could have a look through. You will certainly find fibromyalgia posts in the 'Dealing with chronic pain' thread, and though I'm unfamiliar with it, costochondritis is obviously a painful business too.
    In relation to your benefits questions, you could try out our online benefits calculator here and, as the spiceman says, others who know more will be in touch with you in due course.
    Hope that's of some help, but don't hesitate to get back to us with more questions or details. We're here and listening :smile:
    Warmest best wishes to you
