TOPIC: ESA Medical - Terminated by Assessor

ESA Medical - Terminated by Assessor 2 weeks 2 days ago #187108

I am in the Support Group and today have had my first ESA medial assessment, I was very anxious about it. During the questions, the assessors asked me if it was ok to do a physical examination, which I said yes, however as this started I became very breathless, and the assessor stated it would be best to terminate the medical. I have returned home and feel very worried, as most of the questions she asked were around my mobility and care, but I thought there should be a lot more questions, should I be worried, has this happened to anyone else ?

We long ago gave up trying to predict the result of an assessment by how it actually went :)

ESA Decision are taking 2-4 weeks at the moment.
