Welfare Rights / Re: PIP review pending...
« Last post by paradox on 14 Dec 2018 10:50PM »
Hi well its happened!
My PIP review has come through! 11 months and 3 weeks before my award is up and 11 months exactly since i was told of my award which was for 2 years but dated 4th December 2017 (I got the award through the post on 15th January 2018) So yes they do contact a year before the award is finished. So I am now for the second time in a year going through this process again. I got High rate mobility and high rate daily living last time when they transferred me over from DLA indefinite award. From that to this, its a disgrace and affecting my health badly.
So I got it today 14th December and I must have the form and suporting evidence in by the 4th January. Taking account Christmas and New year, it leaves me no time at all to get this all done. I have just had enough. This time last year I was doing a double PIP and ESA review at the same time...and now this!

I did not know that Lankou. I have had periods of spells like these for a number of years. I might have already mentioned it was thought to be too low blood pressure and an essential tremor but low blood pressure is associated with standing up and I am sitting down. I wonder if it is a CP thing?

The blood test I had was the yearly MOT one for iron,cholesterol and vitamin D etc. I have a 0.6 risk of cardio vascular disease in part I think because my blood pressure is on the lower side. It is so frustrating being in less pain now I am taking Pregablin but more wobbly so I cant do the things I want and need to do.

Maybe it is just that I tend not to think about a particular state of my health once it improves and so I sort of forget about it until BLAM it comes back :-(

Lankou  >hugs< sorry I missed you earlier post.

Ally and Lankou,

I had a blood test about a month ago and everything was withing the parameters it should be. What you said about being so tired you fell asleep sitting up and low blood sugar ties in with the fact I had another spell while unpacking the super market shopping. I wonder is it just I have rubbish core muscles and so when I tax my system by sitting upright it makes me dizzy etc.

Thank you everyone.

Just because your sugar level was OK a month ago does not mean it is OK now.
Also those symptoms could be caused by low blood pressure.

Either low blood sugar, or could be anaemia.  Have a blood test that'll tell you it its either of the above.  I felt incredibly tired.  Fell asleep sitting up.  Then, experienced feeling faint and dizzy, with palpitations.  On visiting the GP, I explained the above.  She ordered blood tests, and, I was diagnosed with low ferritin. I'm now on ferrous fumerate iron meds.  The ferritin is slowly rising, and, I'm no longer feeling as tired.  So, go and see a GP.
