Doesn't your surgery have an online appointment bookings and prescription requesting system?

Thank you and it is good to have a list of Pregablin side effects. It is difficult though because I really need a holiday from how much pain I was in and I have done this before. I think the longest I have taken Pregablin for is about four months because the weight gain gets too much and also a sense of otherworldlyness kicks in and I see people who are not there. Oh my that is too dramatic it is just like when you see the coat on the of a settee and think it is a person only more so.
 I will think about going to GP after all it is impossible to get as appointment right now unless it is urgent.

On the upside it did not happen today. I have just been feeling tired and wintery.

It is so frustrating being in less pain now I am taking Pregablin but more wobbly so I cant do the things I want and need to do.

That just sucks  >thumbsdown<  But I do agree with Ally and Lankou that you should take this giddy-shaky feeling to your GP..

Having just read this about Pregablin, please go to a doctor.

1) I'm worried the money might be over the 6000 and what that will mean

Plus

2) I'm worried if I take a chunk out to may a workman that brings the money under 6000 then the DWP/LA will think I've squandered it on purpose so they don't get the money. I want to spend whatever it is on clearing my garden and making it maintenance free. As best I can anyway.

Paradox, I'm really sorry that you are having to go through is this again so soon. And what a miserable time of year for it. I hope that you have everything you need to complete the form filling be that help, energy, concentration, literally whatever.  >x-fingers<

Welfare Rights / Over the savings limit

What happens if you are given over 6000? ie how much is deducted from income related ESA and housing benefit?

Also what happens if I pay for someone to sort my garden out and almost use all the money up? I'm not about to become a millionaire and I'm doubtful it will be an where close to 6000 but my sister is urging me to find out benefits implication in case it is over 6000 whenever or if ever we receive any money next year. Thanks.

Horrible news and I am sorry I was wrong. 

The Government and DWP have been made to change different aspects of Personal Independence Payment the most recent being the one related to mental health and the mobility component. Thing is the you are right ever time we claim or have a review or award can be cut or stopped altogether. 

Going from Indefinite DLA to the equivalent PIP award but the award being so short makes no sense.
