    hi there yes i was turned down for pip as i can still walk but not without pain  i only got awarded a couple of things and that was nothing for mobility just more to hands
    i now been told i have arithitis in my feet and more than possibly hands as well .

    but walking can be painful now more than it was on constant pain killers  etc and have overactive bladder  an mild depression

    Hi

    When did you receive your decision letter ?
    You have 1 month from the date of the letter to request a MR

    It is important to understand the points system,descriptors and the criteria for an award. A good place to start is the self test on the B&W site

    Please have a look around and come back with any questions
