I have a medical for Incapacity benefit next week and would like some advice.
I did not receive any forms to fill in with regards incapacity benefit, though i would of received back to work questionaire, not to sure of what its called. Should i have received this before i was called in for a medical or not.
Would also like to know if the exempt rule for neuro immune conditions still applyed or not, any advice would be great.
I received 15 points on my last medical two years ago and i have just won a appeal for DLA.
I have fibromyalgia but have just been dx with two trapped nerves in neck which has caused severe numbness in the body and this has caused me problems with walking and toilet needs as i have no sensation, been referred for physio and clinic to address problems with incontience, should i send this information in to them, also should i inform dla that my needs have changed and that i have more problems with doing daily activies as i was given low rate personnal care and mobility when i won my appeal.
I have a appointment at the eye hospital as have major problems with eyes also, blurred vision, flashing lights, scar behind left eye centre vision, was given glasses not eyes not focusing.
Pleses any advice would be great, also was told that i can record the medical for my own personal use, which i plan to do as had problems before with them putting opposite answer to what i had given, also was told allowed to ask them if i can read what they have wrote down in medical report at end, as they ask you to sign form at end, is this correct or not.
Any advice would be great and should i get a benefits advisor to attend or not.
