    HI @heamopain, firstly welcome to the community 😀 About PIP, I don't know about anyone with your specific condition, but I will say that PIP isn't based on particular conditions. It's how your day to day life is affected, this is so people even without formal diagnosis, but who are affected by whatever condition(s) they have can get help.

    Citizens Advice have a page that goes through every question, giving some examples of what can be put down. As many things people don't think count can often count!

    I'm going to move this to the PIP section of our community, incase you do have further questions and want to keep us updated on how your PIP application is going. 😊

    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
