I too have my appeal this Friday coming. Again it' a sat Nav.  I have fibro and can get fibro fog especially if I worry about where iam going. So always have my sat Nav with me.i don't drive far due to pain.  Was awarded 4 points from higher rate.  On appeal they put, I can drive so have strength.  Can ride my pony so have strength..  I told them I only drive short distance,  only ride when I feel up to it   and have to have help to tack up and to mount and unmount, use aids to ride. And ride in company.  I thought you got higher rate,  and can have a car to help get you about. Never heard anyone say you can drive so you must have strength?  So can't have a car..

    Hi @Trike, welcome to the community. 

    I am feeling sorry to hear this. I do not know if this is going to help you but you are not the only one with similar feedback after appeals. 
    I hope you have at least nice weekend.

    Thanks lza.
    Other thing she put was on low pain relief, I told her the doctors took me off Tramadol,  put me on lycra but had to stop taking them , made my chest worse,  copd, I have asked lots of times to be refered to pain clinic.  But never have been, thinking of moving surgery.  Don't know if it will help, think it's all down to saving money on drugs n referrals.  Anyone else having these problems with doctors?
