Hi everyone. I just wanted to let everyone know that it is definitely worth appealing if you fail your esa medical. I only got 6 points at my medical. I was diagnosed with fibro about 11 years ago and have been on incapacity benefit until my medical in November. I appealed right away and went to C.A.B. My tribunal was on wednesday last week. They didn`t let me know their decision at the tribunal, as they said they could see I`d been in some discomfort throughout the hearing. I received a letter on Friday saying that my appeal was allowed. I have been awarded 18 points and I have been placed in the work related esa group. It has been a horrible 7 months waiting for that dreaded tribunal but I am so glad I stuck with it and went. Don`t give up is my advice.....its not a nice process but its worth it xx
