I'm in such a state, I've had 6 operations on my spine which is classed as deformed - degenerative disc disease - arthritis & cervical myelopathy. I was awarded the enhanced pip for mobility 2 months prior at a tribunal then I had the esa atos health advisor. She states need aids & support and can not walk for more than 15 meters I walk with crutch and my carer has have had falls due to muscle and nerve damage but 0 points as I could get a self propelled wheelchair and if my house is not adapted I could find an employer to leave it with, well how would I get home? My back and leg which goes dead that's why I use crutches are so vulnerable there's no way I could push myself she said I have strong grip as my finger and thumb touched said I go GP in a car that takes 5 minutes, I have no doubt in future I will need a wheelchair but I don't want the muscles I am using to stop can it be forced?
