    HI,


    You can report the change yes, if you think you will score enough of points for a daily living award. Although before you do this i'd advise you to get some further advice from an agency near you. You will be able to tell them how your conditions affect you and they will be able to advise you further.

    PIP isn't awarded based on any diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect your ability to carry out daily activity based on the PIP descriptors. Reporting a chnage of circumstances means you'll be sent more PIP2 forms to fill in and return.

    Start here, to find what advice agancy is near to you. https://advicelocal.uk/
