Hi I've just signed in has a new member I was on high rate dla indefitingly then it changed to pip I am 68 years old I went to my pip assesment and was only awarded standard mobility and nothing for care citizens advice helped me to put in a mandetry reconsideration this was turned down so I was told to appeal after 7 months of waiting I had my appeal and the appeal was upheld I was only awarded the standard rate of mobility I even told the judge that I had complained to atos has the examiner had lied on several things in the medical report she said that I had a full multiskelaton examination yet I had no examination whatsoever I told her my foot swells when walking or standing wich it does due to my oestoarthritis wich it does and I'm still under a consultant for this she put in her report that my foot did not look swollen yet I was never even asked to remove my shoe and sock so she could look at it so how did she come to the conclusion that my foit was not swollen ?? SORRY for the long post but I could go on and on I even use an inhaler through a spacer with face mask yet pip say that it is not classed has an aid to take medication ?,
