If you do a Forum search, top right of page, with Fybromyalgia as the search criteria, you will find that quite a few members have been successful in receiving DLA for this condition.

Hopefully, some of those who have will also reply.

Hi

I was awarded DLA initially in 2000, renewed in 2003 and 2005 before any diagnosis! I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2008.

Just remember that it isn't the illness you get the awards for it's the way your illness affects your daily life.

Hope this helps
