Hi sorry to butt in on your thread but I have got a rare and complex condition which is very unpredictable. I have been turned down twice for DLA and have been waiting 16 months for the first appeal to be heard at tribunal. I dont know what else I can provide as proof of my care needs any info would be appreciated as to tips to turn this issue around. :(

Have you looked at our Best Way to Challenge a DLA Medical Report guide on the following link,

I`ve been through all those joints,I`m 100% pro-active now,I tend to tell my consultant and gp what works 4 me..... If I were were awarding your claim I`d know what to do......btw co-dydramol painkillers were fantastic 4 me don`t be afraid to discuss drugs with your gp/consultant ;)
