Advice on getting PIP for fatigue

I am in the process of applying for PIP and have completed the online mock PIP tests on the Benefits And Work website. All the questions seem to be geared towards assessing mental illness and physical disability though. Non of them seem to assess fatigue, which is my main symptom (especially on bad days) and what is making it practically impossible to work. Has anyone had experience/advice on gaining higher rate PIP with fatigue? Many thanks

@joshd You must consider that pip looks at how you are affected on the majority of days. Fatigue could be classed as a mental condition.


@joshd , also consider "Access to Work" as another scheme, which can offer assistance, which might help your finances :- https://www.gov.uk/access-to-work
