Why did this happen at my PIP appeal?
I suffer with fibromyalgia since 2001 and was diagnosed in 2013. I was awarded dla higher for both in 2014 for two years. In 2016 I applied for pip and was awarded higher mobility and standard daily for two years but they wanted to review last January and awarded both standard. My representative advised I should do mandatory request which came no change. My representative then advised to appeal because my health has not improved so they shouldn’t have took any points off. Recently I had the hearing and all the panel agreed they wanted more medical evidence from my GP and did not ask any questions. Can anyone tell me why this has happened. my representative was surprised and said he never came across this before. I am getting very tired of the process. Will appreciate any comments.
