I am new to the forum and not sure if this is the right place to go for help and reasurance.
I am a lady of 58 years who has worked all her life, had children and returned to work.
Over the last few months my health has deteriorated dramatically and am now paralysed down one side including my face and throat.
Neurological consultant has carried out all his tests and has now declared that they are all clear. I have asked for a diagnosis and all he could come up with was Non Organic Neurological Disorder
which is fine as far as he is concerned, but I have these problems and seem now to be cast off into the unknown.
Can anyone out there give me any advice, are you suffering in this way, can we still claim any benefits?
Having worked full time for over 40 years to be thrown on the scrap heap is very frustrating. I have never claimed any benefits at all through my working life and now I need them I am not sure where to go.
Please help if you can, any advice is welcomed.
