Hi Angie,

It may be a good idea to give the helpline a call and chat to a nurse about your DEXA scores, unhealed ribs and smashed vertebrae after your fall and see what their advice is all round. Also if you qualify for PIP or at least point you in the right direction? Would CAB be able to help you with your PIP question too perhaps.?

Gentle hugs over to you. :)

Apply, there is no rule to say you cant. Have you got a CAB near you that can help you fill in the forms?

Good luck
