Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with CIS transverse myelitis. I wonder if you could give me some advice. I work for the NHS, however have only been in my current job for just under 2 years. I have been off work for 3 months and my pay has just been cut to SSP which is £85 a week. I am awaiting a further MRI and am extremely anxious with ongoing symptoms of burning pins and needles and balance problems. My neuro and G.P feel it would be best for me to have these symptoms under control before I go back to work but I am now really worried about money. Basically , would you know if I can claim any benefits whilst being on SSP?.
Thanks a million.
