    Hi there and welcome to the community,

    There is lots of advice on here relating to appealing PIP decision but also you could contact CAB or welfare rights for help.

    Your next action would be to appeal the decision and go to tribunal, your MR decision letter should have details of how to do this. Also note that MR does have a low success rate but tribunal success rate is a lot higher 

    Have a look through the PIP section for advice or if there is any specific questions you have just ask
