    Hi,

    It's not impossible to claim. lots of people successfully claim it without any problems. It's not about a diagnosis. It's about how your conditions affect your ability to do daily activity based on the PIP descriptors. If the descriptors don't apply to you then you won't score those points for an award.

    You now have 28 days to request the MR which should be put in writing stating what you disagree with and where you think you should have scored those points.

    Evidence will be needed. I'd advise you to contact your local welfare rights or other advice centre for help and face to face advice.

    As TonyMan said what's up with you, as poppy has stated PIP is about your abilities not your illnesses or disabilities. Be grateful that you don't need or require this benefit and can look after yourself and are mobile. Unlike many others needed to claim this benefit to survive.
