PIP troubles - been told to contact all medical professionals
Iv aplide for p.i.p 3 times now last two times I was refused as the asessour lied about my assessment the first two times! This time I have managed Townsend all dicumentdbfrom my medical records and letters between my gp and rhumatoligist and occupational therapy! I havebrecived a letter from PIP telling me that they now need to contact all professionals dealing with my case as they still need more information! What more do they need as they have everything my drs and the hospital had! I'm confused as they also said I may need to go for yet another assessment! I feel like im being violated for the third time! I jave serio positive rheumatoid arthritis and was diagnosed on my 21st birthday im now 46 tmorrow! I also suffer with depression and anxiaty due to my rhumatisam! I get really bad flair ups where I'm nearly crippled and my partner ends up dressing me and I end up wearing slippers for up to two weeks where my feet swell up and can't get my shoes on! I get flair up in the ribs at least three times a day to and have been hospitalized 4 times with the pain being so bad I can't breath !
