Hi,PIP isn't about a diagnosis, it totally depends on how your conditions affect you daily and you certainly can't compare 2 people. We're all affected differently by these conditions and what might affect one person, might affect another person totally differently. Lots of people claim PIP successfully because of how they're affected daily from fibromyalgia. Evidence will be needed to support a claim.
Hard to disagree with @poppy123456 or @Yadnad. I wonder if polls like this really hide an anxiety about struggling with a condition a lot of people don’t understand and which divides the medical profession and then being anxious about a benefits rejection on top of that?

Good luck with your application. Whilst I understand that PIP focuses on the effects of your condition, not the condition itself, I totally understand why people look to speak to others with a similar diagnosis. It’s not something I’m affected by, but I do wonder what the outcomes tend to be like for people who are affected by invisible illnesses like CFS, chronic pain with no associated disease/diagnosis and Fibromyalgia. I live with chronic pain and have recently been awarded pip so don’t be disheartened.
