TOPIC: Assesment lies

Assesment lies 10 months 2 weeks ago #196572

I received my dla to pip award this morning, standard care no mobility
I read the reasons why & cant believe this is about me!
Apparently I got out of the armchair with no problem despite the fact I don't have an armchair & wasn't asked to do anything physical!
The assessor has also put he doesn't think the various medication I'm on for MS can be classed as pain relief
I'm lodging a mandatory appeal but surely the assessor can't get away with these lies?

Apparently I was seen to sit up, then stand then sit down again, even though I stayed in bed the whole time and my feet didn't once touch the floor.

Ps, I won my tribunal.
