    A worsening of condition doesn't automatically entitle you to a higher PIP award. It's got nothing to do with a disagnosis.
    Before reporting any changes you need to have a good understanding of the PIP descriptors and what they mean. If you go ahead and report changes you will be sent more forms to fill in and return with all your supporting evidence. You will very likely need another assessment which will be either face to face, phone or video call. Your award could either stay the same, increase, decrease or stop completely.
    You should get some expert advice from an agency near you.

    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.
