I am waiting for hearing for PIP but forgot to send off confirmation letter within time given as I forgot where I had put it (Fybro fog) so hope they don't dispute it. I also had my assessment for ESA few weeks ago as I have been on it since July 2013 last year. The problem is the doctor stopped the assessment when he asked me to lift my right arm up as far as I could and I said I couldn't but I used the arm to wipe my nose so my daughter said I did afterwards. Not really sure what happened in my head I also had this voice from a forum I had read earlier that day saying just don't do anything they ask! also I think I got confused and thought he wanted me to move it back so it must have looked like I was doing it on purpose. My arm and wrist was aching that day due to arthritis in my shoulder and did not want to move it too much. My doctor wrote a letter to backup my Fybro and chronic depression stating I can't work but forgot to include the arthritis and osteoarthritis in hip on the letter so getting her to rewrite. So now I am panicking and worrying that it will look like I was faking. Another thing that really disgusted me was they kept me and my daughter waiting for 2 hours as they said the doctor was late but the couple who had appointment after mine went in first. I was fed up and aching all over just wanted to go to sleep. I am currently not on Pain Management as i cancelled it and have not been set new date, finished all CBT and only saw Rheumatologist last year. Anyone have any advice what to do next I am 55 and on the scrap heap with professional qualifications?
