After years of hell with my health I now have the transfer from DLA to PIP to endure!
I sent all sorts of letters from my consultants and factual evidence from my GP but my GP is refusing to give a letter stating 'how my condition affects me ' for PIP.
I stupidly thought it would be enough but on top of my having to have two hospital visits a week I now have to have a PIP assessment!
I rang them to ask for a home assessment and ATOS said they had nothing down regarding my proof so I rang the DWP. They said they had it all there ! They agreed to send someone to my home as I really don't go anywhere on my own now because my breathing can get bad very quickly and I can choke on the phlegm, due to surgery on my throat. I also feel faint and anxious when I walk and have to stand.
I can't understand why they would waste money doing an assessment when there is so much evidence?
I've lost over half a stone in a week as this has triggered issues in my stomach again and the choking is a bad problem being examined by an ent consultant at the moment, I started choking during a barium swallow test on Monday.
I'm so worried about all this and only for needing the money I wouldn't bother claiming.
I wouldn't mind but when I claimed ESA I didn't even need a medical, they rang me to tell me everything was OK and not to worry.
Has anyone else had this? It really makes me feel awful
