    PIP isn't awarded based on any diagnosis. Whether there's any entitlement will depend on how your conditions affect you against the PIP descriptors.

    I don't know how your conditions affect you so it won't be possible to tell you if there's any entitlement. There's 2 parts to PIP, daily living and mobility. For any award you need to score at least 8 points in either part, which will give standard award, or at least 12 points for Enhanced. The daily living and mobility part are added separately.

    You will very likely need an assessment because most people have them. They are mostly by telephone but some are also face to face. Once an appointment becomes available you will be contacted.

    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.

    Hey there @justintalma09 and welcome to the community.

    As Poppy has said, PIP is less about diagnosis and more about how your conditions affect you on a daily basis. Best of luck with your claim. 😊
