Work won't acknowledge my disability and won't make reasonable adjustments
Hello all , I am 23 now and was diagnosed as a child with EDS I have a couple of different types, currently I am awaiting another MRI scan on my shoulder that dislocates daily, I've already had one shoulder operated on when I was 18, in am wondering if any of you know if EDS is classed as a disability, I am having so many issues with my work at the moment as I've had severe pain and on painkillers daily, they are refusing to acknowledge my condition as a disability and have been reluctant to make any reasonable adjustments for me. I'm just unsure what support I have available and what I should be saying and doing in this awful situation.
