I tried claiming for pip. I was turned down so i contested it and again refused. I suffer with a vascular loop in brain that twisted. Causing vertigo, and balance problems. Some days are better than others. I do work, but i have had to go down to 20hrs. How long this is going to last with my job i don't know.

    Hi @Angantug welcome to the community! Sorry to ear this. PIP is not based on a diagnosis, it is based on how your condition affects your ability to do daily activities. What stage are you at in the appeal process?

    I was told to apply as my condition had a effect on my daily life. They sent me a representative to my home. Later i had a letter saying i was.nt. entitled to it. And i could contest it. Which i did. And was still refused. So i haven't bothered since. To stressful.
