I currently get PIP. I was awarded it October last year for 12 months. Should have been having a renewal claim October this year but it's been extended till June next year due to covid-19.
I was awarded it before I was told I had fybro. It's for all the limitations with my ostioauthritus, diabetes, depression, and the way I eat due to having a gastosleve.   Since being awarded I've has two MRI,s and a load of tests to say I have further ostio on other parts..
I'm worried now I have a diagnosis of fybro they will say no to the next award.as they will think it's all fybro related

    Good morning :)

    They don't tend to look at the diagnosis, it's just the way it affects your daily living and mobility. You could have ten different diagnoses but if none of them have an impact on how you live your life then you wouldn't be awarded PIP. Just make sure when you do get your renewal form you tell them how you're affected like you did before. Try not to get too hung up on the diagnosis side of things, it's great to have it as evidence but they will only look at what you can and cannot do every day.
