    Wow...all the best Milly19, I hope your on the right now!!   I personally loathe the Atos involvment in anything and any area.  They are only a typical Insurance company there to manage business, to make money.

      Oh you poor thing! .... Well producing any and ALL Reports from Doc's and Specialists who have 'somewhere alluded OR stated' in ANY of your reports descriptions of what you suffer with since your Stroke or Gallbladder, (which ever symptoms came about after your first experience, be it the Stroke or the Gall bladder op?)

      Re Timing...   If you have had your symptoms ongoing and basically unrelenting for 2 years plus, it is obvious that 'a miracle cure' isn't in the wind!...  Well not yet anyway.

      SO, what these people have to do is justify 'with what ever evidence they can muster'...to counter claim against yours.  

      You have proof (?) of your suffering a Stroke and Gallbladder Op

      You have Zero to NO evidence that prior to your Stroke or Gallbladder issues prior to Gallbladder playing up, you never had Fibro symptoms ever before.  As there would be no doc records or specialist reports documenting such symptoms.

      You have proof (?) of your condition

      You have proof (?) of the duration of suffering prior to Diagnostic of Fibro

      You have proof (?) of the duration of suffering after the Diagnostic of Fibro

      You are there PROVING to the Panel that YOU are still suffering the symptoms of Fibromyalgia and they vary daily, but some issues..(here you write your own list of issues you put up with) but an example could be,  'pain/stiffness/headaches and balance remain 24/7, sleep issues, insomnia/fatigue etc....'

      AND the associated disabilities are..   Your not able to complete (again your list) eg, housework, gardening and simple tasks.  Showering or bathing issues, mobility, processing speed, weakness of hands dressing, buttons.  Bending over, sitting or standing issues....

      You can write your own list of disabilities, and symptoms, above is just an example.

      Do you have to supply any documentation to support your claim?  Can you?   Can you also write in your own words a statement to support what you would like to get across to the Panel, incase you are not able to Mentally Process in good time all that you need to say and convey to support your claim..?   

      I would suggest writing your own statement, keeping to bullet points and a brief exerpt outlinning each point.

      This way it can help prompt you, incase you forget some things...

      Sorry if I have barked up the wrong tree... but that is basically what we have to do here in NZ....with ANY Reviews...be it with our ACC or our WINZ Medical Review Board.

      It may help if you have an advocate full conversant in what is required and how to managed your claim.  Your still involved of course, but the advocate will have good knowledge of what info is required and how to prepare  your case and evidence.  You no-doubt will be asked to answer their questions directly...that they the Panel will have.

      I assume your Review meetings are the same or similar..?
