Applied for PIP and ESA in June 2014. I had both my medicals within 10 days of each other in November 2014. I felt the man I saw for PIP was uninterested and didn't believe what I was saying. The lady I saw for ESA was much nicer and seemed to be very understanding of the condition.
I was put in the wrag group of ESA after my medical. I decided to go to mandatorily reconsideration and was put in the support group.
I didn't get PIP because I only had 7 points for care and 4 for mobility. I went for mandatory reconsideration with more evidence from my GP but was still not granted any PIP. I had decided to go to appeal and about 2 weeks after putting in for an appeal I got a phone call from DWP to say that they had looked at my claim again and decided to offer me standard rate for both care and mobility for 3 years. So as you can imagine I am happy with this outcome and especially happy that I no longer have to go to appeal because I found the medicals difficult enough.
Sorry for the long post.
