Is there any government help to buy a portable mini-scooter?
I'm 69 years old and not one single doctor I have ever seen has diagnosed me correctly. I have seen 50+ consultants many private, cost a fortune and now we are too poor to move or do anything. All I would like to know is is there any government help to buy a very portable mini scooter to fit in my motobility car. Until I was 52 I was very wobbly, I have been all my life but clearly neither my present GP or the consultants he sent me too had learned of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I do have this even if my present rheumatologist refuses to believe me. The geneticists at the EDS clinic in Harrow were horrified with what I have been subjected to. 14 totally inappropriate or unnecessary operations all failed and all made me worse. My husband is now becoming very arthritic too, but we can't get any help. A lady from social services came round about 5 years ago and all I got was a handle for the front door.
