HELP !!! ESA claim

Hi There, I have just had a phone call to tell me my claim for E.S.A  has stopped due to me failinf the capability for work assessment (Medical), as apparantley I scored none of hte required 15 points!!
Can someone tell me whether all the questions i answered particularly  the mobility question, have to be answered not taking into account any medication I am taking.
I.E at the assessment I was asked about walking distances and I answered  based on the fact that I am taking daily pain relief- prescribed Oramorph and Tramadol and mefenamic acid with cocodamol/paracetomal/ibuprofen thrown in for good measure. So yes at times I am more capable of walking than others depending on pain control,
I am beginning to think i should have answered all questions based on having no pain control,would that be correct
Many thanks
