Help in need of PIP advice
Can someone pls advise me i was awarded pip standard rate for care and mobility for which i was grateful but as iv suffered chronic back pain and my back locks up just sitting down or bending over i struggle to get around my house most days i did ask for a mandatory reconsideration which was rejected i wanted to take it to a tribunal but as the rheumatologist had written to me stating that he couldn't find anything wrong with my mri scans i didn't have any medical back up just a month after my pip rejection letter i went to see a physiotherapist who told me i was suffering with fybromyalgia and on looking at my mri scans she told me i had three worn disks and two disks popping out its taken two yrs to find that out and i have deteriorated over time. iv recently over the last couple of months iv been experiencing daily leg cramps in my calfs which are now subsiding and now have swollen feet and lower legs which is so painful to walk. I'm also a single parent of a three yr old so every days a challendge can anyone offer me advice please
