I have my pip assessment on 28th. I have AS, OA, degenerative disc disease and ? Chrohns. I am already on middle care and high mobility plus ESA. I've never had a face to face assessment and I am totally stressed, sick with worry. I can't walk without pain. I'm on fentanyl patches and am between anti tnf medication, the Simponi didn't work, they are putting me back onto humira which worked a bit. I'm so worried. What if they don't believe me. I get easily confused because of all the opiates and nozinan I take for pain. I only had ten days to fill the form in because it took so long in the post to get to me. I had no help to fill the form in as I was too ill to get to anyone. Are the assessments as bad as people say. my main concern is that they will not believe how it affects me even though I have given them medical proof Drs letters and Mri scans. Please, any advise on what to take and what to say would help. They have given me an 8:30 am appt time even though I said mornings were my worst time for pain. Do they do that deliberately because they don't believe you.
