Will I receive ESA after they receive my appeal?

So I failed work Capability Assessment after scoring 0 points and I’m wondering what course of action to take. 
I failed an assessment about 6 month ago but won at appeal and placed in wrag, so my question is will I receive ESA after they receive my appeal like last time or do I have to go onto universal credit? I know I have to ask for mandatory reconsideration first. 
Im suffering from anxiety and depression and severe dizzy spells after I fell from a wall and banged my head, I also lost my sense of smell. The thought of finding work is scary as what sort of work can I do. 
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi nice to hear from you. I’m feeling very anxious, even more than normal as I’m worried sick what’s going to happen. Last time this happened the mandatory reconsideration took 12 weeks and I never received anything in that time although it was back dated after I lodged an appeal so I’m terrified it will happen again I don’t know how I will get by.
