    Hi @Siveeyk1

    A very warm welcome to our community.

    I am sorry to hear that you have dermatomysos, I have to confess, I have not heard of this condition, before your post.

    I have taken the liberty to find more about your problem.

    It is a dreadful.

    Could I ask what stage your are at, in your quest to claim PIP?

    We can and will support you at every stage of the process.

    The DWP tends to under state a diagnosis, for it's beloved "daily living activities."

    Your condition rings a very sad bell for me and my family.

    Let us know if we can assist you, in anyway possible.

    With kindness.
