My daughter's school is not authorising any absence and I'm in court as a result - any advice?

Myself & both my daughters  ( obviously ) have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.  I have had a HUGE battle with my youngest daughter's school over her attendance since her original diagnosis as the consultant refused to put her name to EDS & only called it Joint Hypermobility. This has led to the school not authorising any absence due to her pain & I am now in court as a result. I finally have a better diagnosis of JHS with pain in numerous joints....but still the case goes ahead & I need advice & support.
