Have you had help with the forms when you filled them in previously ? I've found it's not only what you say, but how you say it.

Did you have a copy of the guidelines from benefits and works ( available from here by contacting admin ) when you filled out your DLA form ?

I think you can only challenge an appeal at a higher tribunal on a point of law, but still worth asking Welfare Rights to have a look .

hi i know you can appeal to the upper tribunal if they havnt given you a reason for their decision which they didnt give me so i have appealed still waiting though to hear back and that was in july good luckx

you have now been dx'd with cfs and severe depression - so, as your condition has worsened, you can claim again. do use the benefits & work info.fill in the health conditions part and give it to your gp so he can write a support letter. ask him to send it to you to go in your appeal or claim pack [make copies] ask consultants to do same.

good luck,

sandra.
