Had my alj hearing....any thoughts?

Hello to all,

I had my social security hearing on Oct 13th.

The judge was very nice. He and my lawyer put all of my info "on the record". There was no VE or ME present.

The judge asked me only four or five questions. None of which related to my fibro or pain. He asked about my fatigue, ibs (how often I go....is it fast or do I strain....what makes it worse), and anxiety. He wanted to know how I got to the hearing, if I do the grocery shopping)etc...

Then it was over. The entire hearing lasted about 15 minutes. My lawyer said that he felt it "went well".

Has anyone else experienced this? I stressed for weeks before the hearing, and I think I'm even more stressed now.

Does anyone have an opinion about how it went? I'm a nervous wreck right now!
