I am in a relationship, with a lady who has, many symptoms of Fibromyalgia. She does have good days, and bad days, and try`s desperately, to keep active, but always, eventually brakes down. Now the doctors are slow to diagnose something, that they do not, clearly understand. My girl, has had tests for practically everything they thought, her pain, fatigue etc, could be the result of. And found nothing, apart from the fact, that she`s double jointed?!! She is unable to work for very long without pain, and so is unable to hold down a job. She want`s to work, but is on sickness benefit at the moment. To me, it is obvious, she needs help. The benefits people, want her to go for a medical. They will examine her, as other doctors have, and once again, find nothing wrong. But, she is still in pain, and some days, is unable to get out of bed. The problem "there" is, if they do not see a problem that they recognize, or accept as fact, they will sign her off, and leave her with no income at all, and thus, expect her to find a job, and earn a living, as other`s do. The only problem being, is that she is not like other people. She is unwell. Does any one know a way around this problem? Is there anyone who can help? I am not sure, that she can take much more.
