Hi, was just wondering what I could claim for if I had to give up work, this was my first day back after 5 weeks of sick, and have to go part time,if I wasn't able to work anymore with the fibro would it affect claiming cause my husband has a goodish job and decent wage, only done one day and my legs are like dead weights and won't stop tingling x

Hiya there,

I have just handed in my resignation letter this morning for a job I loved doing. I was only there three months and I felt like one of the gang, had a good rapport with everyone, but although I tried to hide the amount of pain I was in, it all caught up with me and am now going through a massive flare up and the depression had set in hard and I feel so damned useless. I wish I knew my limits but they vary from day to day. My head says I can do these types of jobs but my body and fibro have other things in mind.

A week before I left I got a fit note from my GP which said I may be fit for work if the company were to put me on light duties, but I was only able to work two days before needing to.take time off sick again, and this morning I called the DWP and got put through to the ESA claim line, who told me I would need my.GP to sign me off as unfit for work.

I have also ahead to try and reclaim Personal independence payments too as I have been refused yet again and missed my chance to take my appeal to the upper tribunal.

Good luck in your quest for benefits and I hope we both feel better soon.

Steffard :-)

Life's too short to be p***ed off all the time, cos you gotta laugh otherwise you'll cry :-/

Guys, i was diagnosed with fms but another consultant diagnosed haemochromatosis(HH). If ye suffer fatigue, general aches n pains, tingling n burning pain, poor memory.....these r all symptoms of HH. Rule out HH with.fasting iron blood tests. Its SO easy treat!!!

Hi sheppy,
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 14 years ago. I was a nurse and managed to change my job several times to accomodate the illness for 6 years .I finally realised I just couldn't continue, but was really scared of the financial implications.my husband earns a reasonably good salary but not enough to cover all our out goings.
I went onto long term sick leave for a year, then mutually agreed with my employer not to renew my contract.
I applied for DLA and ESA, and receive both at the highest rates. I now have more coming in per month than I did when I worked 4 shifts a week.

It's daunting to think about going through the applications necessary for the benefits but I have never had any problems.

I should have left work much sooner than I did. I really believe I would be better than I am if I had.
Good luck
Mollymin

Might have to give claiming a go soon, I do home care, too busy looking after other people than looking after myself, my legs r so heavy after a shift and driving is getting a bit hard with shaky legs, work doesn't realise the extent of fibro even though I told them, they still think am wonder woman and asking me to do extra calls and working on my day off, it bloody sucks..

Even if your partner works you can still claim ESA Contributions. if you have been in work you should qualify for the money side of it. If you're not entitled to money, they will pay your national insurance contributions to protect your pension.
