Hi my name is Jill and I have Fybromyalgia and suspected connective tissue disease. I had to give up work as it was becoming too much physically. I have my pip assessment next week, I was just wondering if anyone with fybro has been through it? I’m dreading it?

    Hi,

    Lots of people claim PIP for the way fibro affects their functional ability but do remember that PIP isn't awarded based on a diagnosis. It's how those conditions affect your ability to carry out daily activity based on the PIP descriptors.

    During the assessment you'll be asked questions about your conditions and how they affect you. You'll also need to verify the answers you wrote in the PIP2 form which you returned.

    You'll be watched from the minute you arrive to the minute you leave. You can take someone with you but you'll need to answer the questions yourself.


    Good luck.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
