Hi everyone. I have fibromyalgia and arthritis but my GP refuses to let me see a reumatologist as she says they won't do anything for fibro other than offer me pills which she can do herself. I am not able to tolerate most pills and just use naproxen and paracetamol. I also have reiki which is extremely helpful. I applied for PIP in March and following an assessment was turned down. I asked them to reconsider and was again turned down. I am now going to apply for an appeal and wondered if anyone else has gone thru this process as I find it all stressful which then makes my fibro worse. I also have primary immunodeficiency and a nerve in my neck that is being pinched, causing terrible pain in my neck, shoulder, arm and hand. I struggle to pick things up or grip with my left hand. My depression has deepened with all this. They have made me feel like a hypochondriact. Thank you.
