I dont suffer from fibro but wanted to tell everyone that it is def worthwhile apealing against an esa decision . I am diabetic and have chronic neuropathy in legs and also affects bowels , digestion and eyesight . plus I have polyarthropathy in multiple joints . In jan 20212 i attended an esa "medical" if it can be called that . I received a leter informing me that I had scored 0 (zero) points !! . I appealed straight away , got a letter from my doc - and also contacted the local welfare benefits advisor in bridgend where i live , who is fantastic. After a v stressfull 8 mths i had my tribunal today . We walked into the court and the judge and doctor said " WHY ARE YOU HERE - THIS SHOULD NEVER HAVE GONE THIS FAR " They immediatlly awarded me esa in the support group . I was in there 10 mins . This only goes to show how useless atos really are !!!.
