    Hello, Clarkie123, and welcome to the scope community. As your condition has got worst since your last claim I would ring DWP and inform them and they will mostly send you a new claim pack and you will most likely have another face to face acessment. Best of luck and keep us all posted.

    Please read Mike Hughes comments on asking for a review. Many have asked and many who thought they should have more ended up with nothing!

    PIP isn't awarded based on a diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect you daily. What you should do is look at the PIP descriptors to see where you could score those points before putting in a change of circumstances. Lots of people do this and go onto lose everything they already have.
    Complete the PIP self test here but this is only a guide to what you could possible score. It doesn't mean that's what you will score.
