Chronic Prostatitis, IBS, Depression and Anxiety

Hi, new member

I know PIP isn't about your condition but how it effects you daily 

I'm just wondering if anybody here has been awarded PIP with the condition Chronic Prostatitis?

    When claiming PIP you can't compare 2 people because we're all affected differently and you never get 2 people the same. Take a look at the PIP descriptors to see where you go score those points.

    And above all try and get some evidence that supports the descriptors that you believe apply to you. Without such evidence all they will have available will be your claim form and what you put on it and what the assessor believes to actually be the case.
