    Hiya DanOApan,
    Fortunately I’ve never been to a tribunal. I’m unable to give you any advice, I’m just wanting to wish you good luck.
    I know there are some very knowledgeable people on here who I’m sure will give you the best advice they can.
    Again good luck and I really hope it goes your way.??

    Hiya DanOApan,
    I really don’t know I’m sorry.
    Its not much fun though, I hate how debilitating it makes you.
    I do at times think there are people far worse off than me.
    I hope it all goes well for you.???

    @DanOApan, sorry about your health issues and pain. As you know PIP this is the benefit you are going to tribunal for? The tribunal will only interested in how you are able to cope manage the PIP descriptiors in your normal daily life in a safe, repeatable and timely manner. In relation to your health conditions at the time of your assessment, regardless if they have changed or worsened. This may or is a harsh fact but this how the appeals system works.
