    Only 18% of MR decisions change, so most people have to take it to Tribunal. Appearing in person will give you the best chance of a decision going in your favour.

    You now have 28 days to request the Tribunal by filling out the SSCS1 form. Waiting times for hearings in a lot of areas are huge and some are waiting a year so don't expect it to be a quick process.

    I'd advise getting help from either welfare rights or a law centre. Good luck.

    As part of your evidence include your latest spirometry report - this should show your level of breathlessness and again should be available from your GP.  It then becomes medical evidence and not anecdotal though your breathlessness is the same.
