Is there anything I can claim?
I have been recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the lumbar spine. Have suffered with my back most of my life but put up with it. Do mostly manual work. I'm 54 and condition has got progressively worse. Long periods of sitting, driving, heavy lifting cause pain. Some burning discomfort. Doctors have not given me any long term advice, had physio but I still suffer. My current job as a delivery driver isn't ideal but I need the money. I'm single and live alone. Any advice if I can claim anything and work fewer hours.
