Definate try and take someone with you, even if its a freind or relative just to observe.....when you get there they explain what will happen when you go in and whats happening as you go along, its not scary when you're there, but if you are struggling tell them. take your copy of documents,but taking anything else is pretty pointless as they are unlikely to accept new evidance without good reason and an adjurnment. They will also only be interested in relevent info/edidence from the date of your initial claim as that is what they are considering,not anyting after that date (unless it makes reference to you at that date). Make sure if there's anything you think they may not understand or have info about that you tell them..write a list if needs be..you will have opportunity to speek about anything you are concerned about when they have been thorugh any questions they may have. Do not over emphasise anything..keep it fair..if you're on a good or bad day that day tell them, but don't try and push your worse day as being everyday unless it is...they will very much take the view if blagging one thing then you'll likely be blagging everything ,but dont be afraid to tell them how it is.
hope this helps a bit and good luck!

Don't tell them "Oh its much worse now" as they are investigating the time your medical was taken, not now, so if you say you had gotten much worse, they will think the original assessment was correct. I fell for this one, and was told by my local law centre about this little trick they use.
