Re: I just went to the SSA Website...
I wish you all the luck for a favorable decision. Just please be careful of your emotions, Just because your specific condition is listed and you feel you meet the criteria, does not necessarily mean an automatic approval, You will have to have Medical evidence that supports your condition,Mri, x-rays etc... It's not enough just to have "it" and your doctor "says" you have it the medical evidence needs to support it.
I have Severe Peripheral neuropathy bilaterally,Degenerative disk disease,carpal tunnel syndrome both hands,severe depression and anxiety, the list of medications that I am taking is very long so I wont go into that, lumbar and cervical spondyolosis,(and those are just the major ones) I have had 5 surgeries in a 14 month span, I have not been able to walk without SEVERE pain in almost 2 years, actually played with the ideas of suicide, had tons of medical evidence to support my claim,and extremely supportive testimony from ALL of my doctors and I was denied twice ((with all the evidence)) I had my ALJ Hearing after 31 months of fighting with SS and finally got a fully favorable OTR (on the record) decision on 8/26/05, my initial application was filed on 01/09/03. I am waiting now on my letter of approval and my benefits to start kicking in!!! I in no way wish to "bring you down" but I just needed to tell you that you may be in for a long haul. I sincerely wish you the very best! I don't know anything about you so I am not sure of where you are with your journey down SS road.
Best wishes and Hugs to you
