Can it be right that PIP can stop your money without warning?

 Can it be right that PIP can stop your money without warning? I have been in receipt of PIP since 2014 however I received a review form last November and had an assessment last week. I know I will have to wait for a decision up to six weeks, but I didn't receive my money this week. However, my original review assessment didn't end until November 2019 so why have I got to go without until they make their new decision? Is this right? 
I have a mri next week two hundred miles away from where I live and need to stay overnight as I can't cope with the traveling and may have to cancel this now as I can't afford to go for it. (This is for staging for  a endocrine Pancreatic tumour) which I have yearly.

    Hi @MsM and welcome

    You will need to ring the DWP for an answer, Your benefit should be paid until a new decision is made or your end date passed
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
