I believe

I went through the conditions on the SSA website. According to what i understand , I am not a lawyer and that article is full of lawyer type words, I fit under 14.09 A,B and D. I could be wrong. What happened is in my elbows i have gout and bursitis. It causes my hands to go numb on a normal basis. I can no longer pick up heavy objects by heavy i mean i cannot even pick up a 24 pack of soda anymore without extreme pain. I am limited to how long i can sit at a computer and type due to the pressure on the nerves in my elbows cause my hands to go numb. Both elbows also have a physical deformity. This does not include the gout that has been effecting my ankles for over 3 and a half years. Both ankles are constantly swollen. The pills i have to take seem to lower the levels for a little while then they shoot back up no matter my diet and the amount of pills i have to take. My ankles have gone into moderate bone degeneration as stated by my doctor. I cannot stand for very long my doctor has me limited to walking no more than a block when my ankles are not inflamed and injured. I have been to the ER numerous times for my elbows and hospitalized once for 4 days due to the swelling in them. If anyone can help me understand the listing i mentioned above please let me know if you think i fit into this section or if you would like more info on my condition as well. I also found another section i fit into it is 1.02 A and B it effects my ankles and my elbows.

I just emailed my lawyer to make sure that they mentioned the above sections in my On The Record Decision Request.

Re: I believe

Without actually knowing you, or what your medical records say, it is really hard to say. The best way to tell is by asking your attorney, which you said you emailed them. That is what I would have recommended you doing. Ask if he feels you meet those listings, and if he mentioned those listings when he requested the OTR. If for some reason he didn't and you don't get an OTR decision, then I would suggest to the attorney to try to outline how you do meet those listings. That would be the best bet at winning your case! Good luck! Keep us posted!

Re: I believe

i also agree that it is important to talk to your Attorney about this. Especially if you are going for the OTR . i have heard that people who meet a listing does not always mean a approval. Social Secueity looks at the severity and if their are any other jobs a person can do despite the conditions. That is why I think it is a good idea to talk to your Lawyer . Let us know what happens , you still can be approved

I am 27 years old i have been diagnosed with the conditions for 3 and a half years or so. I have been treated by multiple doctors. I moved to another doctor when my last doctors stopped working on my problems then moved on to doing weird tests. The doctor i currently have told me i need to apply because there is no way i can work in the condition i am. I have been seeing a doctor for all of them pretty much constantly. One of my doctors put me in the hospital last year due to me not being able to use my right arm at all and an infection attacking it almost getting to the bone.

I am applying for ssi and ssd. I was told by my grandma that all the conditions i have do run in my family and they seem to have skipped everyone of my brothers and ended up in me.

I just talked to my lawyers paralegal she said thanks for the information. I sent them yesterday. The lawyer was writing the request up and was suppose to be submitting it today. They will outline how i meet these conditions. Especially since my doctor filled out the paperwork saying i have deformities and very limited usage of both arms and my ankles. I hope to hear something positive soon.

I hope you get the Otr, but like I said the judge will probley want to see you, and as far as your doctor it is better to have moore than one I had 3 doctors and 2 were vascular surgeons an my gp. I hope your doctor is a specialist in your condition because they pull more weight for a Otr I'm afraid just having a gp is not enough plus your age is aginst you,at the Otr process,you have to have current medical test to show ssa how you meet your listing. And it has to show how you meet it to a t.

I am sorry about the medical problems Slaughter but this is good as far as SSDI goes. What your doctor says does carry a little weight but your medical records are what carries the most weight and you have been getting medical treatments for the conditions you claim make it impossible for you to now work. The other good thing about your case is that your doctor told you to apply. This means he supports your disability. This is critical and the biggest, best ally you can have in any claim for disability is a supportive doctor who backs you up.

I hope your doctor is a specialist in your condition,like I said it's like having a heart problem and the only doctor that is backing you up is a gp, you need a cardiologist to win not a gp.

Re: I believe

Yeah, I agree with what Vann just said. A specialist is much better just a GP doctor but having GP who will support your claim is better than having a specialist who does not want to get involved. The problem with a lot of specialists is that their time is very limited and most hate filling out paperwork, esp. the disability related stuff. Many sadly see disability patients like this as a continuous burden. There are many good specialists who will support you though. Like most things in life, the problem is finding a good one to develop a lifelong relationship with.

Re: I believe

As a specialist goes it is really hard to find one for my conditions as it does hurt every part of my body. I have been told to see a rheumatologist since it is in the arthritic section of diseases. The only down side is i need a referral and my doctor has a minor in this field so is another one in his office and they all say i cant work. I am still pushing to see a specialist when i see him
