Appeal tribunal decision

hi all, I've at last had my pop tribunal hearing, I had assessment in July 2017 and went to mandatory reconsideration, to first tier tribunal to upper tribunal and it was referred back to fresh tribunal, went yesterday and was totally interrogated and lost! I got 7 points for the daily care and 4 points for mobility, can I appeal this and does any one know how long this would take or am I better to just reapply?  In my first assessment I only had depression and osteoarthritis diagnosis but got later got diagnosed with fibromyalgia.  I cam mot believe I was short 1 point for the daily care, it's pushed me to tipping point! It's taken almost 2 years of fight for me! I don't have access to welfare rights or cab in my area and don't have funds to get a solicitor to represent me, any advice would be appreciated
