Pip enhanced care awarded mobility declined advice please
Firstly even though I. Have been awarded the enhanced care there is parts they have pointed incorrectly should I make them aware ? do they look back on pasts awards and points given on the next assessment ? I have not been given any points for eating drinking needing someone with me for safety as I have dysphagia & vocal palsy I wasn’t asked about it only aids I need to make my food , I’m awarded on me requiring aid help for communication . Also mental health side the statement states because I’m on minimal medication for it I received no points , though I choose to not be over medicated because of strong pain killers I already take and have been going down the route of therapy should I question this as it affects my mobility due to the severe anxiety attacks I have and panic attacks going out this is also due to I can go into coughing & choking for no reason on my on mucus and can not eat drink in public due to finding it very embarrassing and stressful which makes me worse . I dont have any lower limb problems and can walk my dogs in a local area to me for a short period that don t need me to eat drink or communicate , I find public transport so stressful as one the communication part 2 the coughing 3 any smells fumes perfume food smells will just send me into coughing my throat nerves go to overdrive I am on high doses oramorph to control this and that alone I don’t know what day it is most days .so it states as I told them I do walk my dogs local ( literally outside my back gate ) this the mobility is pointed as 0 , just don’t know what I should do . Do I have a chance on the mobility part if I ask to have it looked at again or should I just be grateful I have the care part .
