Hi everyone, I have been diagnosed with genitofemoral nerve pain (although the pain consultant now thinks it may be ilioinguinal nerve pain) - whichever!!
I have applied for personal independence payments because of pain affecting my mobility. I have a consultants letter with the diagnosis but don't know how I can PROVE that I can't walk very far. I understand that if you can't walk either 20, 50 or 200 meters REPEATEDLY you have to be classed as not being able to walk that distance.
Does anyone know how often in a day I can be "reasonably expected" to need to walk these distances? Is it once, twice or ten times? I can't find an answer to this anywhere.
Has anyone else claimed PIP for similar reasons please?
I am in constant pain that is made worse by any walking at all.
The example is given of cooking a meal, so if you can only cook a meal once a day you cannot repeatedly cook a meal as many time as can be reasonably expected (3 times).
Bit for distance who knows??
Any ideas anyone???
