Hi Everyone, im new to this website but was after some advice regarding the ESA tribunal process. I have been suffering with cluster migraines and after working for the same company for 17 years i finally had to admit defeat and was made redundant last year due to nearly 6 years of daily pain. I have spoken with D.I.A.L. and they have said that because i suffer from migraines it will be a struggle to win my appeal so i was just wondering whether any one else had been through the same process, any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

How does having migraine affect your ability to work? Can you communicate, (such as reading) are you able to get around outside?

 

That's the sort of thing the tribunal / DWP care about.

Hello there.

 

Here's a link to the forum sticky that also includes a link to the DWP descriptors. You need to figure out how your symptoms match the descriptors to try to convince the tribunal that your condition merits 15 points or more.

 

There's also a suggested template for a document you can send to the tribunal to summarise your position.
