I have been on ESA since last year. I have Arthritis,Ulnar nerve compression (like carpal tunnel, but trapped from elbows), Raynauds syndrome, Backpain and Fibromyalgia / ME. I mobilize with great difficulty - using crutches. The fibro affects my memory and concentration. I also suffer from "dry eyes" and photophobia. I lose my voice frequently too. My hubby is my carer(24/7) with some help from the kids and family/friends.


Attended medical last year and given ESA - but doc "lied" on several points, ignored my joint probs and said my slow walk (with crutches) showed I had depression:!: but would be better in 12 months. This is bad enough as it cost me DLA too and now we have no car, I am trapped at home as cannot manage public transport (I have tried).


Recently had another ESA50 - completed by Welfare Sol. Although I couldnt go to him - he has known us for a year now (the firm are acting for us in another matter). Now I have another medical due on Monday!


Problem is that I have just received my copy of the ESA50 and my welfare rep has made errors on form! Meds are wrong - but not worried as that easily rectified. I am worried though at other entries. E.g. he has said I can sit in straight chair(no arms) for over 30 minutes and can stand / sit / move to another seat without help!?!? No,no,no.... I can't - I need help! Does anyone have any advice / instructions please? Should we ring DWP / Atos to postpone? They did send two ESA50 forms - so I have another we could complete ourselves??? The last doc Was believed by everyone (DLA/DWP) - despite me providing GP and Consultant Statements. Now it seems my new form will confirm he was right?!?!?
