I have anxiety, depression and was diagnosed with trigemeral neuralgia, can i get PIP?
Hi.y name is Julie. I'm 35. Never knew about this group until having a wee nose about online to see if I could qualify for pip. I've just had a baby 8 weeks ago. I suffer from sever anxiety and depression . I get thos horrid fear of I know I have to go out there for I need to prepare my self mentally ect . Had it since I had my 2 year old daughter was born. It's got worse after I had my baby 8 weeks ago. When I was 7 weeks pregnant I was diagnosed with trigemeral neuralgia . Worst pain I have ever experienced. It's a nerve pain in my head and when I have a flare up which is very painful. It starts with tooth ache like pain at the bottom of my jaw and works up to the top of the left side of my mouth and then the whole left side of my face feels like some one is going down it with a hot poker. The pain is excruciating . To the point that nothing pain relief wise helps it. I'm on epileptic medication for my condition. Has any one ever got pip for my condition? For both my conditions . It's frustrating and if anything it's making my anxiety and depression worse as it can just come on out of the blue. Thanks for reading
