    Hello @1984cathy

    Thanks for posting, I'm sorry to read you are finding it difficult to manage your pain at the minute, I hope that the physio  is able to help. Is it long now until your appointment? If whatever they suggest doesn't work for you it might be worth asking what other forms of pain management you could take a look at.

    I wish you the very best with filling out the change of circumstances form and fingers crossed the help from CAB is beneficial for you. It seems as though you've done the right thing in seeking help with it, it can be a challenging form to fill out, just ensure that you illustrate how your condition at this moment in time relates to the descriptors, and use anecdotal evidence where possible.
