    Many many people claim PIP because of the way fibro affects them. Though it's worth pointing out that PIP isn't awarded based on any diagnosis. I have fibro as well as other conditions too and i've claimed it for 10 years.

    Lots of people also care for others and claim PIP theirself, myself included as i'm a carer for my daughter. My caring duties do not contradict the reasons why i claim PIP, which you do need to be aware of.

    Whether there's any entitlement will really depend on how your conditions affect you.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
