When did you get approved and have you received anything via mail yet(approval letter,award letter ,Medicare info/card (if applicable)etc?
You have to realize that WE ALL want things now,and getting yourself totally stressed out in a situation that neither you nor your lawyer can control does either any good.
Too many folks showing the side of "I need that money now".........always seem to have to wait longer.Whether expressing that to the ALJ,your lawyer,or you speaking on the phone to SSA,........it will only make matters worse
PLEASE be patient,as there are a zillion other deserving folks that would love to be in your shoes.Unfortunately the wheels of the government are extremely slow,and patience is a virtue
Have a Happy and Healthy holiday season
