Definitely sounds like your coronary problems were causing some of your symptoms at the time of your assessment, so the Tribunal should take this into account, even although it wasn't diagnosed until later.

Good to hear you're at least having a couple of decent days in a week now , sounds like your stents are making a difference . And very best wishes for the rest of your test results and your appeal .

From what I can remember, the fatigue you were claiming as a problem back when you had your assessment should be taken into account as you've now had a stent and things have improved in that regard. So it definitley seems to link back to a symptom you originally mentioned.

Not sure on whether your MRI result will count or not, depends on whether it can in all balance of probability be seen as the underlying reason for symptoms you mentioned on your ESA form? No ahrm in mentioning it. a letter from the neuroligst saying this would account for balance problems previusly would obviously help.

You can only try your best at a Tribuanl. Stay calm and focussed when giving your responses , and don't waste time complaining obout ATOS etc, the panel aren't interested in that. And have heard it all before. There's a seperate process to make your complaints about how ATOS handled things. The Tribunal panel are there to look at your claim with a fresh pair of eyes, so in their opinion what's happened before is of no interest to them.

Wishing you good luck on the day.

Hopefully he will. Stay focussed on why you meet the descriptors and get your points across firmly but calmly and you'll do just fine.

Will be thinking of you. :-)
