Hi I had my assessment yesterday she only asked about mental health she said she would ask about physical after but she said she had enough evidence from mental health she told me not to worry she will finish the report. My shoulders and hips keep subluxing my doctor witnessed this happening I was going to say. I also have osteoarthritis in both knees it was a nurse I spoke to this time she was a lot better than my last assessor do u think i got 15 points on one descriptor on mental health and that's why she never asked about physical health they also new nothing about my bpd/aspd they was still asking about another condition I removed from my universal account. I couldn't send extra evidence as I only got psychiatrist report about a week before phone appointment. I feel a little better after my high dose of vitamins I can get about better its just the subluxing now its like severe cramp. Ive had to lie on hard floor face down for 5 hours before my shoulder wouldn't go back in it was the worse pain ive ever had I chopped my achilles tendon in half my foot was like a flip flop and the pain was worse than that. I don't like hospitals so I don't go unless its severe

    It's not unusal for them to ask about all your health conditions. They will only ask questions if they need more information.

    For LCWRA it's not about scoring points, you just need to satify one of the descriptors. Once the report is returned to DWP a decision can take up to 12 weeks.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @salty1212334 I recently did my lcwra assessment via video call, I wouldn't panic, I did a bit as my assessment only took about 10/15 mins until she said she'd got enough and she was happy to send it off, and I was awarded lcwra about a week, week and a half later, I can't fault the lady who I had at all she was lovely and I think they read a lot of the stuff we send off and medical evidence and then it's just a couple follow up questions for the actual assessment so don't panic too much my love 😊 good luck
