Hi I have osteoarthritis in my lumber back,Spinal Stenois and depression.. This affects my mobility as I cant bend stretch, walk without constant pain and use aids in my house and a walking stick. I applied for PIP and got awarded standard rate for living but only 4 points for mobility?. I cant even go out without another person with me due to pain levels as i dont drive and feel isolated. I am on a waiting list for surgery which is years long should i appeal this decision?
