      Thanks jodie may I ask is ur case similar and did you get back pay from when condition started or when you had op. Mine is something I was born with but I have just got on with it until last year when it really started effecting my life and have recently had second op to try and help with pain

      I was diagnosed with ms in 2012 and recieved no pip for mobility until I applied for it this year as my condition has worsened. I am on long term drugs that have stabilised it but not to the extent of having decent mobility. I received my back pay today also, to the date that I made them aware of my change in June. I should really have notified them earlier but you live and learn! I hope it works out for you.
