Hi everyone I was on indefinite mobility till PIP took over so my independence and my car went back. One of the comments on the report was that I can use my lower joints to drive, I tried to explain my pain is reduced when sitting etc etc but hay ho. I did an appeal last year , I didn't do well and my pip was on living standard and mobility standard. I have severe psoriatic arthritis, Ostioartritis, anxiety and depression which has got worse because I can no longer work due to mobility, my gp advised me to report a change as my psoriatic arthritis worsens with stress which makes my mobility worse, I produced evidence from consultant and GP also did a diary, My living was increased to enhanced but mobility still standard. I'm so depressed at this all as the ASOS assessor came to my house for the assessment and saw me walk very stiffly and in pain for 2 metres yet she said I could walk up to 50 metres, not sure how she made the assumption, the pip assessor agreed with the ASOS report clearly. I've just put in a mandatory reconsideration, what is the likely hood of it being overturned, I think i put a good case but with the past failed appeal I'm losing all hope along with my independence, also how long do they take .
