I don't think I can return to work and basically just don't know what to do
Hey I'm chez I feel a little out of my depth here and not even sure I'm in right place but here goes Today I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knee and back I have also been referred to a rheumatologist as have blood result that show inflammation. The first doctor I saw thought it was lupus but one I saw today said he doesn't think so nor does he think rheumatoid arthritis but I have some sort of other disease. I haven't been tk work since March and didn't earn enough for sick pay so got changed to universal credit and lost my tax credits and a lot of money it took them ages to pay anything and it was a lot less than I got when working and claiming tax credits. I still have my job am on long term sick but with the pain I don't think I can return to work and basically just don't know what to do
