Do look at the comments on the recent PIP application thread. Many of the points there will also apply to ESA assessments. And if you can speak to your local CAB branch, or ask your MS nurse if there is a local organisation which you could speak to for help and tips. In Edinburgh there is Grapevine.

My advice is don’t assume your assessor knows you condition, don’t be afraid to spell out just how hard things can be. And do say that MS is a degenerative condition, and as you have a fluctuating condition you can vary from day to day. That your bad days out number your good days, as they are looking for anything you mention happens more than 50% of the time.

And if you fall, trip, slip, cut scald yourself etc…. do bring this up. If you do anything that causes pain do say…..

Good luck.
