Change of circumstances
I've recently had a change of circumstance to my health. I was diagnosed last year with adrenal insufficiency and I'm currently awaiting an appointment to see a rheumatologist to confirm suspected fibromyalgia. I currently claim ESA and PIP for ulcerative colitis and ME/ CFS. my health has taken a turn for the worse in recent weeks. However, I'm unsure whether to tell them about a change or circumstances and risk losing the standard rate pip in the hope of getting an increased award. Nobody wants to rock the boat these days. Should I wait until after I see the rheumatologist or report my adrenal insufficiency . I've recently seen an endocrinologist but I'm not due to discuss recent further investigations until the end of the year. I don't think I have the strength for yet another assessment
