My pip is up next month, so I had my f2f assessment last week. Not expecting much points as last time I was refused pip and won at a tribunal. Just wanted to know if I have to appeal again do I get supplementary payments until then.

    Hi, about 2/3 years ago I had a terrible incident and split my head open, I had to get stitches and I suffered from terrible migraines I didn’t apply for pip or dla, but recently
     I had a very close bereavement and I have experienced numbness on the left side of my face as well as pins and needles ( the side where the injury is) my face goes cold when I get very stressed it’s only the left side and since this awful bereavement my eye sight has decreased as well as my memory sometimes I forget to do things such as picking up my siblings from school and even going to the loo, the thing is I’m only 18 and I’m terrified to go to the doctor incase it’s something serious, the migraines have gotten worse as I’m unable to go to uni some days 
    can someone please help Will I qualify for pip? 
    many thanks.

    Hello, if I was you I would see the doctor ASAP.as you are young and if it was anything serious it’s best to find out now rather than later. As for pip I don’t know as they check medical records so doctor would need to know all this before applying. Sorry for now being much help but I do hope you see a doctor and hopefully everything is fine and nothing serious.

    HI,

    As i advised on the other 2 threads, you need to speak to your GP because we can't give medical advice here as no one is medically qualified to do that.

    Regarding the PIP, you need to have had the conditions for at least 3 months and expect them to last at least a further 9 months. As you said recently then you may not qualify under the 3 month rule. My advice it to speak to your GP for medical advice.

    I know you're anxious and worried but posting multiple times on various different threads just causes confusion.

    Hi,

    Sorry but that's not correct advice. They don't check medical records and a GP doesn't need to know anything before anyone applies for PIP.

    Regarding your PIP and the Supplementary Payments. If you're not awarded PIP this time the unfortunately, you won't receive any Supplementary Payments are not paid under these circumstances. They are only paid to those transferring from DLA to PIP, if the PIP isn't awarded.
