Hi
If you feel the fibro if affecting your every day living and your mobility then yes claim for DLA, many fibro sufferers do claim.

I have had morphine patches in the past for pain but the patches started to irritate my skin so had to stop using them, they did help my pain.

Fibro is not all in your head it is very real :twisted:
