I was wondering whether you could help me. I need to get a consultant's letter or medical report that will confirm my permanent incapacity and I have no idea whether I qualify.
I have had RA for the last 8 years. It's not well controlled and progressing fast. Because of it I had to stop working in December 2007 and I am on DLA since April 2008 (middle care, higher mobility).
I am on mtx 25mg, was on Etanercept for 2 years, which wasn't helping, and I'm now on Rituximab which as my doctor said is the last resort. I am only 33 years old. I had one hand surgery, two surgeries on my left foot and waiting for another one on the same foot in Feb 2012.
Am I permanently incapacitated? Please help.
