Hi Im new here, just wanted to give those with bechets a heads up with regards to Personal Independence Payments. I have just been awarded both low rate care and highest rate mobility. I suffer from both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis along with vitamin D deficiencey (big in peoople with bechets!!) I was awarded my PIP as my mobility is variable due to arthritis caused by my bechets. It was a quick and simple process and was made easier by supporting letters from my consultants and Dr's . My advice to anyone thinking about claiming DO IT!! I will offer help and support if anyone requires it. I have the normal mouth ulcers and ulcers down below!! I have just had a hip replacement due to poor bones. If you have bechets PLEASE get your vitamin D levels checked as I had none and this caused my bones to crumble ouch! Oh and if your'e thinking about PIP do it! Bechets is a very disabling condition aand if I can get it so can u!! xxx
