    Hello. Welcome. You've posted in the welcome section. A more specific part of the site might be more likely to get you the engagement and information that's going to be most helpful. All the best.

    Hi @beanie34, as I understand it, PIP is determined based on the impact that your condition has on your day to day living and the subsequent extra cost of daily living, rather than the condition itself. This is determined on your application/ by the assessors/pip decision makers based on a series of descriptors, which you can find here. I've moved your thread to our pip section and I'm sure other members with experience of the process will be able to help you further.
