Hi everyone, I hope your all okay! I'm new here but i am desperately looking for some help with mandatory reconsideration for PIP.
I will explain as much as i can, sorry in advance for the long post but thank you for taking the time to read it.
Back in March i applied for PIP, I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Type 3, Postural Orthastatic Tachycardia Syndrome and reaccurent Lymphadenapothy that is still under investigation. I filled out my how your disability effects you form and went for my assesment in July.
The assesor was pleasant and told me that she was an RGN . My assessment only lasted 23 minutes and she really didnt ask me a great deal of questions she then had me do some physical activities (some were not possible) and sent me on my way.
August 28th i recieved my decision 6points for daily living and 0 for mobility, I cant say that i was shocked as even some doctors at the hospital struggle to understand these conditions its only the specialsts that seem to have any clue. So anyways i called the DWP and asked to speak to the case manager she called me back later that day and it is fair to say we did not see eye to eye. I pointed out to her that through the whole assesors report there is lies and an absoloute lack of knowledge to these conditions and she didnt look at how each condition troubles the other. I told her i would be wanting a mandatory reconsideration and i would put it in writing with further evidence, no decision was to be made until me evidence had been recieved. So here i am i have wrote a long detailed report, included more eveidence and copies of thei guidelines for my conditions. I am really hoping that someone on here would be able to read over it for me (It's long) and tell me if they think it gives me a fighting chance?
A little about these conditions just incase anyone is wondering what they are haha.
Ehlers Danlos syndrome type 3 is a connective tissues disorder it allows my bones to dislocate when and how they please., it cause soft tissue damage it effects the digestive tract and uterus it also cause automic disturbances and chronic fatigue.
Postural orthastatic tachy cardia syndrome
Is an abnormality in the autonomic nervous system, It cause my heart to race for no reason and drops my BP, the blood will pool to my legs (arteries dont close on time) and the lack of blood to the heart and brain cause me to black out. Symptoms from this condition are synecope, palpitations, dizziness, blured vision, digestive problems, bladder disfunction, headache, Mental clouding, pooling of blood to lower extremiteis, Fatigue and tremors.
So with all of that in mind i will get down to the question, is anyone here familiar with Mandatory reconsideration for pip and able to offer advice after reading my report that i need to send back asap.
Thank you so much for reading i really apreciate it.
