Disability Living Allowance and EDS/HMS

I applied for DLA and it has been refused from what I can understand on what the Rheumy (who has seen me once) has said. I am really upset because they have no idea how much this condition has stopped me doing. I have really bad anxiety attacks that it is a struggle to do my shopping, I get so exhausted that I can't cook. I can't lift anything heavy or lift my covers over me without causing sever pain. How do they make these decisions?
