    Hi ailish

    No one on  an internet forum can answer.PIP is not awarded for yur condition, illness or diagnosis. It is about how you manage daily activities
    In the first instaance try the self test


    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    Hi @ailish, and a warm welcome to the community!

    As CR says, PIP is not awarded based on your condition, illness or diagnosis., but on how you manage daily activities. However, this online self-test can give you an idea of your entitlement. Have a go, and do feel free to come back to us with any questions.

    I agree. There are many people that have an extremely difficult life caused by debilitating and serious life threatening conditions and disabilities. But unless the impact on their lives actually match the descriptors within PIP they would not get an award.
    However there are also people who have non life threatening conditions and in general can live quite well but the impact of those conditions match exactly enough of the descriptors to give a PIP award.
    As you can see it is the impact that is only considered and not the condition.
