Hi. I am on pip. Last year i was on the enhanced daily living allowance, and lower mobility allowance. I have severe epilepsy, myoclonic jerks, 2 crushing discs in lower back, and fibromyalgia. Around September last year, i had a bad fit which has caused both my knees to move in and out. I have a full time carer as i can't be left alone. When i wrote to PIP, then sent same form to fill in, and an assessor came out. And now im on lower daily living allowance, and no longer on mobility. I've asked for mandatory reconsideration, that was refused. But I'm really not sure on what to do with regards to an appeal????
