Allthough all the answers to your questions offer goid advice etc please keep in mind that its irrelevant if you have a doctors note or not your empmoyer is mot dismissing you because you are sick or dissabled irs because yoy are absent. They may also say you are incapable of doing the job you were employed to do if they have made all reasonable adjustments. I dont want to alarm you but you need to remember you are there to do a job and if you cant do it then you may be asked to leave. I know from experience as i medically retired from one of the biggest financial institutes in the uk as they had made l the reasonable adjustment as set out by occupational health the union and remploy who were supporting me. Hower i stll needed time of so rightly i was deemed as incapable of doing my job. Its harsh but reality

same here lovely so many similar symptoms that just randomly appear with no warning and so how many known symptoms are related put in place and treatment of the problem started asap.are we supposed to treat individual symptoms separately treated or have one that we can use to treat a group of symptoms meaning less medication less fees

Hi yes they can dismiss you due to your absence at work. You may be covered by the dda bug that only requires that your employer makes reasonable adjustment. This is normally interpreted that if your absence is fybro related you can have slightly more time off before any absence management process will begin.
