esa support group and new UC claim

Hi everyone....so moving home triggered my claim for UC and my ESA Support group claim closed. I was told, and it states clearly on dwp website, that even though its not a natural migration, I would keep my support group status carried over into the new UC claim.

Pip

A few months back I was advised to claim pip, I took a few weeks and decided to give it a try, not really hopeful. So many stories from people being treated so badly I then changed my mind, I didn't return the pip form. It was stated on the letter that it had to be back by a certain date, so I just didn't return the form. No energy or will to tackle it ...

Fibrositis or Fibromyalgia?

Hello,

I'm new here, I was diagnosed with FM in 2014, I feel as though my GP didn't know a lot about it, she didn't refer me to anywhere to have other things ruled out, didn't ask for blood tests, she did a pressure point test from information she had printed out, I mean to be fair, I had tried the things you would usually to help FM before being diagnosed with it, I initially ...

New research show that medicinal marijuana has the potential to revolutionise pain management for fibromyalgia sufferers, yet the current rules do not allow G.P.s to prescribe it for fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia affects 2%-5% of the UK population, which means that at least over one million people could benefit in a relaxation of the Misuse of Drugs Regulations. Please sign ...
