hi my name is DI and I have an hiatus hernia approx 3cm and am on 120mg of antidepressants and have just been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my hands shoulders and back and lower limbs. I am a carer for my disabled husband and am finding it harder to tend to his needs as he has a back injury witch means i have to help him dress help him to get up and down and wash ect I was wondering whether I would be entitled to claim pip to get extra help for both our needs as I get tired quickly and my joints become painful and I have trouble walking without pain and it is now a struggle to cope. many thanks Di
