Firstly l cannot believe what Alan has been through, to be suffering in pain all day everyday is bad enough but to have to suffer the mental torture to battle for recognition of an illness to this degree is despicable.
I myself have CS and chronic pain all in all of my joints l also suffer from extreme headaches that no pain killer can take away. I fall very easily and have just had to resign from my third job as cannot cope with sleepless nights due to pain and more intense pain due to increased workload. I also have High BP and GAD!
I battled with DWP and was only awarded pension credits on my first visit after the medical. I was called for a second medical and waited for 2.5 hours because the decision maker could not speak clear english and neither could the previous claiments!!! This decision maker lied on all my questions and my pension credits were removed ( not that it made much difference) but that is not the point. I also suffer from GAD (general anxiety disorder) I went to Tribunal but it nearly sent me over the edge l felt like a criminal. I won the pension credits back - on my anxiety because i couldnt stop shaking and then burst into tears. I'm sure that my job has increased my pain but i dont think i could go through that again. Wishing you every success Alan and everyone else. xxx
