I have Inflammatory R A Osteoporosis in spine and hip I have hypertension high cholesterol asthma and other problems with my health I am on 14 types of medications each day I also suffer with extreme exhaustion and are in constant excruciating pain I have been under the care of a Rheumatologist for 7yrs plus after urgent referral from my Dr's when blood test came back showing very high Inflammatory markers in my blood I had always worked but when I could no longer I had a unbelievable difficulties getting any help on my first visit to Atos I was awarded Zero points on appeal I was awarded 27 points on the day of 1st appeal I could have got even more the DR asked me if I was sure I could do the. All I said, I could, its not easy for myself and many others I expect to admit how bad things are, for the last three yes I have been receiving P I P for both components at highest level but a new application is needed for it to continue after November and even with my health issue's I am dreading it!! I did have assistance from Dial to fill in the forms before but have not been able to get any help that I need so am very concerned!! I have many falls amongst which this year I fracture's my hand in 2 places I was taken into Hospital by ambulance where it was found that due to another fall I had damaged my Ribs which then had damaged my Lungs I was not in a good way there are many more times I have hurt myself but it is still very daunting for me to have to worry about my claim so for whatever your medical issues are for the people on this and other sites I know how difficult to get help it is, so good luck,P. S. Sorry for length of my 'Rant' Jan.
