hi all well today i had my 2yearly esa assesment only just got through it was doped up on new meds .. i have had 4 heart attacks and now diagnosed with malignant hypertention . i was on pip and esa until june last year when i informed pip of my last heart attack and had to have face to facd the asssesor lied in the form so i lost pip i apealed and lost so now awaiting tribunal date .. esa assesor today couldnt understand why pip was stopped as letter that gp sent and form meant he didnt have to see any further evidence .. plus all my meds i take 11 a day incudes diazepam and pregabalin to try and relax heart and vessels he asked what support i had at home ..none as live alone and due to pip stop cant afford to pay anyone to help ..

    PIP is not about medication or conditions you have you get points on the basis of how your conditions affect you carrying out the descriptors it's always a risk to report a change of circumstances so you have to make sure that it's going to affect the points you are getting before reporting it

    Hi,

    No, your ESA claim has nothing to do with a PIP claim because they're 2 completely different benefits.
