    Yes  you will be re assessed and get a new award so you could end up getting less
    Only report a change if you are sure that your new information is going to alter your point scoring on the descriptors

    No.  You keep your current payments until after reassessment. 

    A a word of warning.  A lot of people have said that after reporting their disabilities getting worse they have lost not gained points!  You might want to consider if it might be better to wait until your next review.

    It's another face 2 face assessment as most people have them. Be very careful when reporting a worsening of condition because it doesn't mean you'll be awarded more points. I'd recommend getting advise before doing this.
