PIP Reviews

Hi all, new to the forum so apologies if I am posting incorrectly or in the wrong place.

I have been advised that reviews of PIP awards are taking place owing to a change in the law regarding the Mobility descriptors and mental health issues.

I suffer from PTSD which means I have adverse reactions if I come into contact with anyone I know to me and Agoraphobia which means I am unable to go outside, suffering panic attacks, vomiting, fainting and have had dissociative episodes when I have had to.

Therefore I find the descriptors in the Mobility section, ambiguous especially 12. Whilst I physically can walk and move unaided, this is very much dependent on the situation. Inside my home, I am able however, outside or in a situation I’m not comfortable in, I would not be able to as I would suffer panic attacks, fainting, vomiting, dissociating etc. all of which have happened when made to leave my home.

Therefore I am unsure if I should request reassessment so any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
