Confused and don't know what to do.
Hello everybody. I have just joined the site and would like some advice if possible. I was recently put on UC after my ESA was stopped. I have recently started a course, having been put on this by my local job center. Unfortunately after only two days due to a lot of standing, walking and carrying a heavy bag (heavy for me anyway) back and knee problems I have a had for a number of years have been aggravated. I have been in a lot of pain, severe at times and was unable to attend the course on Friday. I am no better now and just cannot see getting much better in the near future. What do I do? Apply for ESA again? Will my UC be stopped even though I am physically unable to travel due to the pain? I would be grateful for any advice. Many thanks.
