Brain injury chronic fatigue PIP appeal got 18 points - now back to 0 again - erh!
Hi, I suffer from chronic fatigue from internal head injuries from a car crash. My appeal was successful in 02/2016. I have just been reviewed and got 0 points again, how odd as brain injuries are permanent.
When I met the medical guy sitting next to the appeal judge in the lift he said the decision was based around how many hours I had to sleep. Which is 12 plus 5 during the day to manage the fatigue. If I don't manage it, I cannot rely on any of my cognitive functions, memory and have balance problems. When I do manage it, my bad health is hidden.
My appeal records have been destroyed so I cannot find out what we was referencing. So I wanted to ask this forum, Have you any idea what he was referring to in law or disability presidents historically? This, if I could find it will help with the Reconsideration letter I will be writing to the DWP with help from the CAB.
Many thanks, Lee
