I'm afraid I have never heard of the medical condition known as Charcot Marie Tooth, so please pardon my ignorance.

As you are now at the appeal stage of the claim, I would suggest that you refer to the guide entitled "Support for Clients with DLA & AA Appeals" in the DLA Resources area under the sub-heading DLA Appeals HERE.
