New Decision From DLA

After having my Atos medical on the 25/09/2013 I received their decision last week saying I was still only entitled to lower rate care. That was distressing enough as my condition is considerably worse with other disabilities diagnosed, but today I have received another letter saying they have relooked at the decision and now saying I am not entitled to anything from 07/05/2013. To say I am flabbergasted would be an understatement. How can they do this, suddenly pick a date out of the hat and saying I am no longer disabled, or need help. They are unbelieveable. I now have to appeal. But my claim was also due for renewal in November, does this mean I cannot renew and have to put a new claim in?.

My disabilities are: Lumbar Spondylosis, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Meneires Disease, Plantar Fascilitis, Depression, Sleep Apnea, IBS, Urge Incontinence.
