    I am 52yrs old and have been going to docs with different ailments for 10 years, although I do have L4&5 herniated discs in spine and one trapping the nerve and osteoarthritis,  anyway I have now been diagnosed by my newish GP with fibromyalgia. I was referred to a rhumatologt but they have refused to see any more fibro patients.  So what now ...I am appealing PIP because the HCP said she did mobility side of assessment but I sat through the whole assessment...
