I have my DLA appeal on the 14th October, my original claim was in November 2012 which was turned down.. since then my condition has gotten worst, I now mobilise with 2 sticks over short distances, and in a wheel chair for longer ones. A local charity worked who helped me throughout this process says according to the 'law' I qualify for higher rate mobility and middle rate care, with evidence to back it up.
I have great pain in both knees and ankles along with massive back pain following a traffic accident, its that bad that I have been successful in applying for a disability facilities grant for a stairlift through my local council as I can't get up the stairs and have been sleeping on the sofa for the past year, have also had help through occupational therapy and adult services
My worry is that the tribunal has a old physiotherapy report and a ATOS report from before my condition got worst.
Is there any advice you can give to help my through this ordeal I'm having to go through.
