Hi cookie
May I ask who diagnosed your CFS/ME - your GP or a consultant? Atos & DWP sometimes, not often I have to admit, view a diagnosis confirmed by a consultant more postively than one from a 'mere' GP. If it was diagnosed by your GP it may be worth asking him/her to refer you to a consultant for a second opinion.
Ther is plenty of evidence to show that CFS/ME does exist & is a serious condition.
Good luck with your next ESA claim.

Interesting while I agree with you and know the first paper was wrote on ME in 1884 yes that 18 :)the evidance is still being argued by different camps

and till they come up with a test the arguments will carry on
