Hi, my name is brenthedread!
In my arm which is also 24/7 my left leg shakes and will sometimes give way I cannot walk as normal people do if bumped I will 99 out of 100 times fall over I cannot run or jump due to my nerves some are dead and some are trapped this is just a few of my problems anyhow I applied for pip last March was refused twice and now waiting for a hearing with the help of the welfare dept I have now been informed by uc that their doctor who saw me in September 2017 says I'm fit to go back to work. Can somebody please tell me how a doctor who knows next to nothing about my illness tell me what my body can and cannot do I have seen 3 different people from uc and not 1 of them has dealt with or knows of my condition yet somehow they can tell me that I am fit for work don't get me wrong I've done hard labour most of my life which contributed to my illness how can a doctor override a orthopedic surgeon who is a specialist if anyone has any advice it would be appreciated
