    Sorry to hear this.It is not what the diagnoses is that PIP is given for ,but how the condition affects you.

    You have 28 days to request a Mandatory reconsideration. You need to write a letter stating what you disagree with and where you think you should have scored those points and why. It's not about a diagnosis. I'd advise you to get some help with this process from your local welfare rights.
