I have introduced myself in the Newbie section and this is my first post in the working section.
I currently have RA and Fibro, and work for the Ambulance service in a large city in England, have been struggling at work for over a year, Sulpha has reduced my inflammotory markers but made my fatigue and pains in my hands, knees, wrists and ankles worse, sometimes my hands feel like they are submerged in treacle.
Currently off sick, as my pain was so bad that I felt unable to cope, obviously the job involves lots of lifting and emotionally stressfull situations.
Management have been about as much use as a chocolate teapot, the Union rep hasn't replied to my Emails from the middle of June.
The only advise from management was, you will need a capability hearing, as an off the cuff remark when leaving the office.
Are there any other NHS staff on here that have experienced similiar apathy .
Have sent an Email off to the head of my sectors HR, but no reply in just over a week.
Just looking for feedback really, any advise or pointers welcome.
