Letter showing date of diagnoses
Today I got copy of the consultants diagnose of having CFS back in 1995. I was hoping to use this for backup however on reading it through although he says he has little doubt I had CFS one sentence also says examination of her musculoskeletal system was entirely normal. Of interest was that she was not at all tender over the classical fibromyalgia trigger points. Then he says the worsening of my symptoms may just relate to an early menopause at 44 but I was till having periods till 56? Im wondering if this letter will help me or hinder my case of getting the PIP, really ned some advice hear as I must send the form in soon. Clearly it wasn't the menopause as at now 68 im still suffering. Should I send in the letter with my PIP form or not?
