    OK, I've had a look on the net and the Benefit is ESA (Employment & Support Allowance) claimed for using the form ESA50.

    As I see it you don't get any points for specific conditions, only how those conditions affect you - obviously people are affected in different ways and severity from the same condition.

    I can't see you getting any points if a doctor has ticked a box and hasn't explained your problems.

    Would it be because they are saying they want a confirmed diagnosis before they will complete any points for that section?

    Thanks for your replys, I have never had any problems with mental issue just mainly functional disorder of many parts of the body, It is just amazing how you can get an Atos doctor for home assesment and he writes lots of lies, it is so upseting that now i have to discredit all his fabrications. Still can not work out this medical but as far as i can see its a load of crap.
