Question Do I have a chance?

I have Fibromyalgia along with 14 cardiac stents, Restless Leg Syndrome, arterial abliteration, and removal of 1/2 of my stomach. I have been trying to get my disability for 2 1/2 years after working 30 + years as a nurse. Yesterday my primary physician excepted an indepth questionaire and said he would complete it for me. I have a disability hearing comming up soon and wonder if having this questionaire completed by my MD if I have a chance of finally being approved?

Re: Do I have a chance?

I'd say you do have a good chance if this is all been a issue in order to continue working. It's all up to the judge to make the final decision.

It's best to have a attorney to present all for you , especially since you have been waiting for so many years. Best wishes at your hearing.

Wish you well

Re: Do I have a chance?

I say you have a good chance too. You didn't say how old you were, but the younger you are the harder it is. If your doc can convince them to give you disability then you will receive it. Also, just be aware that sometimes people have to go through the process more than once to get it, so be diligent. best to you
