    You need to get face to face an advice centre near you. No one on an internet forum can tell you if there's any risks to your current award by requesting the MR/Tribunal. Most MR decision remain the same anyway but it's impossible to advise because no one knows how your conditions affect you against the PIP descriptors.
    This link will tell you what's in your area for advice.
