Sorry to add to the list of millions of medical questions but please bear with them. I had my medical and the doc told me that I have been given a P8 for having Rheaumatoid arthritis in my big toe, (first i've heard of this). I get home and ring the specialist (a pediatrist) that apparently gave me the the diagnosis. He says that he did not diagnose me with arthritis and the only mention of arthritis in the report he sent the doctor was in the preliminary diagnosis (i.e. the list of things they guess could be wong before proper diagnosis) and that upon investigation they found nothing wrong. I now have a letter from the pediatrist and a senior pediatrist saying that there is nothing wrong with my toe, however it says that the evidence of there being nothing wrong is in an x-ray I had. So 1st question: Do I need to get an actual copy of my x-rays for the appeal or can I just give them an address to send for the x-rays? 2nd question: Will the people the appeal is sent to still have access my medical records as the doctor did, or will I have to aquire the preliminary diagnosis notes myself? 3rd question: In the letter from my AFCO explaining the appeal it says I need to write a letter to request an appeal. I've done this and the basic structure is this: I wish to appeal, why I wish to appeal, what happened in my point of view. I that good enough? I'll post it if it helps but it'd take up alot of the page. Any answers are greatly appreciated.
