review form for pip 2 weeks 1 day ago #209868

hi again and thank you, i see what you mean. having the new diagnoses of ischemic heart disease hasnt changed my day to day living and there hasn't been any change in how much help I get ie dressing bathing preparing food ect. the changes it has made, however, is when i get extremely stressed out and anxious. i suffer from anxiety anyway but extreme anxiety can give me an attack of angina, for example, when I had to attend the cardio department, its extremely difficult for me to get out with the agoraphobia but, having to go to the hospital as well as going out, brought on a severe anxiety and panic attack which brought on an angina attack. that was caused by having to go out, to a public place and having to see a consultant that i didn't know. another thing that can bring it on is, example climbing the stairs which i very rarely do anymore and never on my own, what was mentioned in my last review, the assessor mentioned that i had an electric bed and was trying to get a stair lift installed, i had an occuptionl assessment not long before my face to face who was tring to get this sorted for me because i struggle with stairs and i sleep downstairs the majority of the time because the pain is to severe to climb the stairs. unfortunately, my stairs are not wide enough to have the stairlift, my bathroom and toilet are downstairs to so, i dont have to go up stairs to use the bathroom. climbing thestairs can bring an angna attack on, but these where things that werent even mentioned in my last review and didnt know i had angina then, i always put it down to my copd and getting very breathless. i dont use the upstairs of my house very often but on occasions when i have been able to go to bed, my daughter helps me up and then back down in the morning, i dont go upstairs very often, it all depends on my level of pain, so its not a major issue so wasnt disccused at my medical or on my form really. i will take another look on my form but im pretty sure climbing the stairs wasnt put down on my form with spending the majority f the time downstairs. I do know it was mentioned on my esa form because it was a question they asked.

PIP considers your problems with the activities on the majority of days, you should also have a look at the reliability criteria, both are explained in the PIP Claim guide.
