I've been feeling pretty grotty for the past couple of weeks--leg not healing properly (4 1/2 months since the ulceration cleared); sporadic shoulder and hip pain; not very mobile; and having had a PIP review 3 weeks ago!
On Monday 21 November my pharmacist dispensed to me 2 types of antibiotics (Doctor had taken a leg swab on 8 November,pharmacist had prescription ready on 10 November --only one problem; no told me the swab indicated a complex infection or of the additional medication required).
2 days later the gloom has lifted, my leg feels improved, AND a decision from DWP in 3 weeks! An increase in PIP payment! Despite my earlier misgivings it was a fairy after all!
