    Hello @Greg75 Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining.  Please can I ask do you have anybody to support you through this.?

    I would also suggest have a look at our information and advice on Talk about PIP.

    Lots of advice, information and comments from supportive members.

    Hope that helps.

    Best wishes for a successful outcome.

    Take care

    You need to study the PIP criteria and look at each descriptor and what points you think you are entitled to  and concentrate on this as bombarding the assessor with medical conditions will not work as they are not medical specialists
