Just wondered if anyone could give me some info. So 2 yrs ago I had a health assessment at home for pip. Prior to that I was on high rate mobility and mid rate care DLA for ten yrs, I have fibromyalgia, fowlers syndrome, plus slipped discs in back and neck plus joint degeneration. After pip asses I was awarded low rate for both. I appealed mandatory as I found the report to be unfair and contradictory and didn't state how it affects my daily life. My adult daughter has been my carer for years but at the time of my pip asses she was having mental health issues and couldn't engage in meeting. I was suffering even more and did t ha e the strength to appeal further. I also am on esa and at the time of asses was in the wrag group. Well March this yr I had an esa assess and was put in the support group as my health had deteriorated. I have a friend who's a health care professional and she has said that I should either get them to look at my pip decision again?! (Which I don't think they will) or do I need to apply for it again? I'm only awarded pip til Apr next yr. my health has got worse and have had more Mir scans, treatment, that didnt help and tablets for neuropathic pain. I know it's a lot I've wrote down, but there's a lit to it and I wondered if anyone could give me some advice please?!
