I applied fir the PIP in March 2016 but was refused I appealed but was refused it was so humiliating as I have high blood pressure osteoarthritis in ankle and knee and hip imbalance suffer with pain and going up and downstairs very cumbersome and painful.  Have blue badge but find it very stressful that my application was turned down on a points system.  So unfair!  Not sleeping properly and need meds for this. I'm dreading having to try and reapply then hear the news today that all those people who were told no would be looked at again. That appears it will take forever.  Any advice please.
