We are very limited in the advice we can give in regard a potential appeal to the Upper Tribunal, you do need to be aware that you will not receive any payments while you do this.

You can make a new claim for ESA, assuming that more than six months have passed since the original Decision that you appealed, however, you will be required to re-qualify for ESA which will depend on you personal circumstances. This can be done in parallel to any appeal that you might make.

One comment on the limited information that we have on you from your posts, ESA is not awarded because of the conditions that you have, but rather on the effects of those conditions on your daily and specifically in relation to the 17 sets of ESA Descriptors, this is better explained in or ESA Claim guides. This is relevant to a new claim and any appeal.

The DWP are not legally required to pay claimants appealing to the Upper Tribunal, the only cases where they have, that I am aware of, have been where they initiated the appeal, I am not aware of any case where this has happened when the claimant has made the request.

Just to add.

An appeal to the Upper Tribunal cannot be made on the basis that you disagree with the Decision, it can only be made if you can show that there has been an Error of Law in the proceedings, see

What is an Error of Law?
