Pip assessment and Morphine

This is probably a strange question.  If you take Oramorph to allow you some mobility
does the PIP assessment then deem you not to have mobility issues.  It is a not easy to get morphine every week and there is the possibility that it might be stopped due to strict dispensing rules.  So what I mean is, I can walk a longer distance when on morphine and really struggle when not on it.

    For PIP they take into consideration how your conditions affect you at least 50% of the time over a 12 month period. If you can't do that activity reliably, safely to an acceptable standard, repeatedly and in a reasonable time then you're classed as not being able to do that activity.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
