Chronic pain in spine
Hi everyone I've had to fight to get a MRI it's took me 4 years after I hurt my spine and lost my job I've stated all along to the DWP I've had a spine problem because I was put on UC they even failed me on the fitness for work test I scored zero points I've now got my MRI scan results I did not have them when I had the assessment and my results don't look good Ive also been in court to fight the DWP and it got adjourned because they said I would go in the work group and because I said I can't work because of the pain iam in and use a walking to help me walk around they adjourned the case wanting my medical evidence from January 2017. Does anyone know if that's the correct group they said they would put me in my results from my MRI is as follows... images at L3-L4 demonstrates mild annular bulge with no neural compression..... L4-L5 demonstrates annular bulge and right paracentral annular tear.... L5-S1 demonstrates right paracentral disk protrusion touching the right...T10 down to level of the sacrum sagittal sequences demonstrates multilevel degenerative disk disease affecting most of the lumbar disks ... Descending S1 nerve root within the canal associated with right posterolateral disk protrusion causing narrowing of the right exit foramina with facet joint disease especially on the right side causing Futher narrowing of the right exit foramina. The DWP did say I would be put in the work related group at court but it's adjourned untill I get the information they want so I've got to wait even Futher for a court date would anybody know what money I would receive on benefits and how much and if that was the right group they said I would be put in my doctor is writing to the hospital I already get pip trying to get answers from the DWP I get nowhere at all I know it's long but I've put a lot of detail in this from my results I would be very happy for the help thanks .
