    Hi @Kev100, and a warm welcome to the community!

    I'm truly sorry to hear about your pain, that must be tough. We've had a few members discuss PN and issues with their feet in the past, and you may be interested in this past discussion on PN.

    At the very least, I hope it helps you feel less alone. You're among others who understand here and will do their best to help!

    Up and down as I guess most of us are. I tend to have what's best described as severe toothache in both feet all the time then some days it really ramps up. Have just been turned down for PIP so struggling at the moment but others have it a lot worse so I guess keep calm and carry on it the way!

    Sorry to hear about your PIP claim - will you be appealing?

    Yes indeed! I originally sought the help of the local age UK office and they did say to come back to them if I needed to appeal. They literally filled the 14 page form in for me. I would recommend them if you need to go this route.

    That's great to hear you've received fantastic support from Age UK! Thanks for the recommendation. Do keep u updated and if we can be of any help :)
