    You have to start the process by requesting a Mandatory Reconsideration or MR 50% of these succeed.
    You might want to try and get help from your local welfare rights. The link below is a good place to start:

    I am a person with epilepsy not an epileptic, my illness doesn't define me.

    After sending them my form I use to call them almost twice a week just to know what's happening with my claim so they gave me appointment on the phone when I call them to ask when I will get appointment they checked in their system there was next day appointment available so I accepted and after assessment i call them every week to ask my decision has been made or not 2 days ago I call they said no not yet and today I call they said yes decision has been made :) so basically call is quicker then the letter I know it's long time wait on the phone but worth it 
    Good luck:-)
