Dystonia 
i have just found out I have cervical Dystonia. I have had this condition for a year but no one really knew what it was and eventually sent me to a neurologist who diagnosed it. He informed I had to take Parkinson’s meds for 4 months. I have started them so far so good in terms of side affects not really seeing any improvement to the neck. After 4 months I can have the Botox anyway I’m struggling at work I have a very demanding job as a social worker driving is particularly difficult and I have to drive a lot to visit ppl in their own home. This is also a problem as it depends on seating arrangements etc. I have informed my employer and they are going to look at a desk/chair assessment. I am 60 yrs old I don’t have a great pension and I rent my home so no property. Can anyone tell me whether I would be entitled to PIP or moterbility then perhaps I can reduce my hours at work and get an automatic car.
