    Hi @lisabrazil80, the award of PIP isn't based on a diagnosis, but how a condition affects your daily life. You can find the PIP mobility descriptors here.
    I hope that helps. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask! :)

    @lisabrazil80, as Adrian stated PIP is not a benefit based on diagnosis but your ability to cope manage activities in your daily life and any mobility problems, issues you may have. So look at the PIP descriptors and do a self test assessment to see how you would score if you persoe to claim the benefit and have a face to face acessment because what you state in your application form will have to be justified at your assessment.
