As anyone had either their d.l.a / personal independent payment stopped after their review my mobility isn't great and i need help to get in and out of the shower im scsred that i may fall as i have done in the past. I struggle with preparing meals for myself due to my hands constantly being numb
After numerous normal blood tests and a long long road of not giving up because i knew something was not right w my body. My pcp diagnosed me w fibromyalgia.
