    trezash , you can appeal although that isn’t going to help you for now . Have you tried ESA ? Surly they will give you something whilst you appeal . My friend got refused and had to claim ESA her Doctor said she wasn’t well enough to work . She had to attend another assessment but the person who did that said she wasn’t able to work. I think PIP criteria is different from ESA. I am new to this too , there are people who will give you good advice. Sending hugs to you , hope you get it sorted soon

    You can appeal to a tribunal.  Your MR decision letter will tell you how to appeal.
    Disability Rights UK site has a good guide to PIP appeals.  Try to get some f2f advice from CAB, or similar, or Welfare Rights.

    Thanks guys for the advice appreciate it , think iam not going to let it rest and go to tribunal I have been reading  some comments on the subject and think all they want is for you to give up one thing I hate is that they think iam making it all up when they haven’t lived a day in my shoes .
