Hi all this is my very first post having just registered, although I have been a member of Arthritis Care for a good few years. I have had psoriatic arthritis for 30 years and am now 53 yrs old. I had to retire from my work due to ill health 3 yrs ago and am receiving Incapacity Benefit and Disability Living Allowance since then. I also suffer from early osteoporosis, dyspepsia, high blood pressure, irritable bowel, MGUS (blood condition with 5% chance of developing multiple myeloma) and sleeping problems. I am now being re-assessed for Employment and Support Allowance and am dreading the process as it seems to be very few people who make it on to the Support Group. One question I would be grateful for any advice on would be is there any advantage in submitting a GP and/or Consultant medical report with my ESA application? Anyone got any other tips to help me with the process?
