I had the same, I got living allowance but failed the mobility part. Comes down to a simple choice really doesnt it. Challenge now or challenge later. I opted for challenge later. My walking is poor, I work part time and find it hard just to move round the building I used to work full time in. I’ve applied for my blue badge and had the OT check last Friday. When I challenge the decision later I will be able to explain my failings better because I obviously didnt the first time. A blue badge will be part of that challenge. What to do next is your choice, the guidence notes explain what they are looking for with pip mobility. I spend a lot of my time ensuring I dont fatigue myself out because then I hit the floor and that hurts. I dont know how to explain that properly at its best so that it sounds convincing though. If you do appeal and are successful please do come back here and comment on it.

thanks , i too failed the mobility part , but i cannot walk without a folding walker, and already have a blue badge, i have been diagnosed for 6 years , but still able to work 4 days a week .Common factor we both do what we can to work , whilst a lot of others without M.S. dont try and get full P.I.P , I will be challenging now , but will get advise.
