Hi my name is Andrea, my daughter was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis at 21 months she is now 7 years old, she has it in 13 of her joints . we have had DLA high rate the last 2 years which was up for renewal last month. We were refused any DLA which i appealed against then was reawarded the middle rate for 2 years which was great as this helps towards Rubys activities and hospital parking as a single parent this helped us alot. Then after the first month i had a letter to say we are no longer entitled to DLA as in the consultants letters he has used the word "little evidence" which has gone against us even though she is no different from 2years ago same medication, Methrotrexate 15mg and Enbrel 12.5mg weekly and as people no who have experience with juvenile arthritis how unpredictable it can be, one day they can be fine the next they could be have a flare up. Any help or advice would be very grateful. Thank you.
