TOPIC: PIP PA4 Report

PIP PA4 Report 3 weeks 18 hours ago #220326

Just a quick question.

On my PA4 report, last page under the "For office use only" section.

Musculoskeletal disease (regional) Non-specific back pain.

The back pain I have is caused by a prolapsed disc L4/5 and sciatica,.as documented correctly by the HP in the History section of the report.

Will this contradiction be of any relevance in a MR or appeal ?

Many thanks.

Does the "back pain" limit your ability to complete the PIP activities or at the least contribute to you being unable to do them?

If it does then it is something to raise during an MR or appeal, if not then it simply indicates that the report is prone to error.

Gordon, yes the pain limits me in at least 5 of the descriptors.
Stretching, bending, twisting, turning and walking are all painful or impossible because of my prolapsed disc.

Gordon, what does the following refer to on my PA4 report under the
"List all evidence considered alongside the consultation findings" ?

Other (please list)
FME on system considered.

The other evidence they have listed is my
PIP questionnaire 02/05/2016
PIP PA4 16/06/2016
AR1 questionnaire 26/06/18


This seems to show no medical evidence has been taken into consideration but I'm not sure what the "FME on system considered " means.

Thanks.

FME is Further Medical Evidence, this could be the evidence that you have submitted but I can't tell you whether this is what was attached to your PIP2 or AR1.
