Hello Debbiejohn and welcome to our friendly fibro forum where you can find advice, support, help and understanding.

Have you seen our mother site ? Here you will find a wealth of information including guides and links, one of which is to our Benefits Advisor Janet.

You haven't said if you have fibro or how long you have been diagnosed but it is a condition recognised by the DWP.

Nobody can say with certainty if you will get your ESA, indeed very often members fail the first step and go on to a result with a Mandatory Reconsideration. Others will get it through a Tribunal and sadly some deserving cases are refused altogether.

I say this not to worry you but to prepare you for what may be a lengthy process.

I do hope we will see you around the forum
