Being sent for second assessment as Atos don't have enough information
I’ve been for pip assessment 2019 I have fibromyalgia spondylitis osteoarthritis struggle walking anxiety depression after car accident numbness in my hands legs arms feet pains in spine neck and shoulders . I’ve been to see a rheumatologist and have phrilific nerve pain and have regular visits to the doctor. Autos said they don’t have enough information about my illness and are sending me for another face to face assessment a month 2 weeks after I’ve had one for one hour n a half . They said if I do not go my payments will stop. They have made my illness worse as the anxiety of this causes the widespread pain in my body. I phoned dep they said it’s up2 atos if I have not give them enough information I said I’ve sent them all hospital and doctors reports if I don’t go to 2nd assessment my money will stop. I’ve worked for over 30 years and never claimed anything how can they send me for another assessment after already having one. With help off the hospital I am feeling little better but their constant questions and I feel as though they don’t believe me I’m very unwell. Is this right??
