Be aware, a Tribunal would not be able to take any account of her deteriorated condition, they can only look at how it was at the time the Decision was made.

Hi, after month of tests my wife as been given the diagnosis of fibromyalgia, I been told that some people that not all doctors take this diagnosis serious , my wife suffering badley , do you think pip take it serious as she is seriously thinking of asking for a change in circumstances , your advice would be valuable

It's not the diagnosis that is important but the limitations that result from the condition that will be assessed.

You mention her reporting a change but do not refer to any deterioration in her condition, just a diagnosis, she needs to consider whether she might reasonably score the extra points needed for a higher award, even if her conditions have worsened, it does not necessarily mean that she will!
