PIP award ...new diagnosis

aylasnan Member Posts: 33 Connected

I have a full PIP award. Numerous illnesses.
I now have a further diagnosis of lipodemea. No change to anything else. 
Do I need to inform the DWP/ Pip people?
What will happen please?  I cant cope very well mentally because of it all so the thought of more intrusive paperwork etc is worrying me. Please advise. What is the simplest thing to do with the least intrusive outcome. What are they likely to say if I telephone and just explain I have a new diagnosis to add to my list. I find the whole process so intimidating.
