emphysema, sleep apnea, social anxiety, depression
I made my PiP claim way back in Aug 2017 and still waiting for my tribunal.
I had an xray months ago and they missed the emphysema, but recently found it with CT scan. they told me its mild. I have a hernia from coughing so much, which causes me problems bending, my body hurts from coughing. I have real bad anxiety and depression to. I cough going up the stairs.
I did the spiro test and passed it! I was coughing and hurting whilst doing it. As soon as I do anything, like going up the stairs, I cough violently, cant breath.
I am on high dose of inhalers with steroids in them as well as pills for this, along with my pills for depression. I have had to surrender my driving licence
My assessment report ( they came to my home) was joke. It was said I was observed going upstairs! I was not. I go for walks in the countryside! Little bits missing from what I said, that change the whole out come.
I also have sleep apnoea and the Cpap machine is not working out for me, so always tired.
I managed to eventually get a letter from repository recently saying that I cant work. Will this be accepted as evidence due to my claim being in 2017 and me only getting this letter recently? i never went for diagnosis and treatment until April 2017, due to mental state.
My mental health nurse gave me a good letter stating my mental health conditions, the the HP seems to have trumped my mental health nurse!
What are they like in these tribunals? I aint looking forward to going. I found the experience very unfair.
