    Hi @weeswifty welcome to the community!

    PIP is not only based on how your condition affects but how it affects you from doing daily activities and your mobility.

    There is a self PIP test on the link that @thespiceman provided which only takes a few minutes to complete and you will find out if you would be eligible for daily living component or nobility component :)

    I receive these injections too and have done for the past 4 years. As you receive those injections if this is your only condition then it should be fairly well controlled , apart from possibly 2-3 weeks before your next one is due. PIP isn't awarded based on a diagnosis, but how your conditions affect your ability to do daily activities in the PIP descriptors.

    Check the link out above but bare in mind that the PIP self test is just a guide and it doesn't mean you'll score those points for an award. Evidence will also be needed to support a claim.
