    Hi @gudrun

    Sorry to hear about the situation that you are currently facing. Please forgive me as I am still learning about issues that people face when dealing with benefits, etc. I am sure there are members of the community with a lot more knowledge and will be more than happy to support you.

    The DWP doesn't care what is wrong with you, what illness you have or what medication you have had.

    The evidence you have to find relates entirely to proving which of the descriptors fit the impact on your life.

    was   otherwise   informed by the   CAB,like have a list   of   all my   prescription i took over 1   year , plus all the   specialists who i have seen in   one   year    my   blood   results , hearing problems    legs and so   on , yesterday   i   could   hardly walk   even   as my  flat is adapted   with   relings on the   walls to hold on to it , every step was    like walking on glass, so i stayed in bed   only   got   up   to   use   the    bathroom   when i need it . mostly slept   as   the   painkillers   knock   me   out  solpadol. But   thank   you   for   your   Reply
