Hi everyone.

Mark here. Just an update. After TWO received the MR on 31/01/17. They have today informed my mum they gave at last received all medical evidence they requested. So will have the decision within 2 weeks. Ad all of you are aware this is a nightmare. I have been hospitalised again with severe relapse of my MS. Had more MRI and Lumber Puncture. Which shows I have Demyelintion with heavy plaque load. Which means the lesions are on my brain and spinal cord. I have also found out I have epilepsy. So hopefully the decision will be what it should have been to start with. Fingers crossed. And much live to my mum who's pushed them into getting things sorted.

Hope it goes well for you all waiting in same sitution as myself. I'll let you know the outcome.

      Thank you I honestly wouldn't have done this if it wasn't for my mum. It is really so stressful. Especially when the assessor new I had been diagnosed with MS. And lied in the for. But u have copies of the letters my consultant and Specialist MS have sent DWP. So at least they now have all the correct info. XX
