    Hi there and welcome 

    Pip isnt about what condition you have bur about how your condition affects your daily living and mobility 

    I would start by looking at the descriptors and see if you think you would score enough points 

    Look on the pip  section on here and you will find them 

    Basically it has to affect your ability to complete some of the tasks like  dress , bath  prepare food , reading,  communication,  finance,  toileting , mobility to mention a few

    Welcome to the community @karen44 :) How are you doing?

    As Janer1967 said, PIP is about how your condition affects you rather than your diagnosis. 

    You might like to have a look through pipinfo.net to understand the descriptors a little better.

    I've moved your post into our PIP category, and renamed it slightly, so that other members can find it more easily.

    Note also that PIP is not about work. If you have a health condition that limits your ability to work you would be looking at ESA and/or UC.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
