I have previously posted this on another forum and I’ve been advised to use this one - can anyone give me advice as follows:
I’m seeking advice about claiming for PIP. My wife suffers from MS and whilst she is still mobile, she trips up all the time and now hates going out on her own for fear of falling. This has been ignored by the PIP assessment and I’m appealing. Does anyone have any experience of the appeal and does anyone have further information about mental incapacity associated with MS.### Thanks
The challenge is that with absolute caution Maggie can walk more than 20 metres; however she can also trip over at any moment and in the past 3 weeks has:
Fallen down our stairs at home - splitting her head
Fallen down the stairs at the cricket club whilst watching grandchildren, breaking her wrist and smashing her face
Tripped in the kitchen - no damage thankfully.
She has also spent an evening in A&E having temporally lost the use of her left leg - unable to move (we think a relapse) but have no confirmation as yet.
We are keen to find fellow sufferers and campaign jointly.
