My disability has come up for review also. It took 2 1/2 years of fighting to get it in the first place. When they sent me the forms, I didn't take any chances. I wrote long statements concerning every doctor, medication, therapy, etc., I had had in the past years since the onset of my disability. They only asked for 12 months. That makes it seem like you have no problems if you don't see the doctor every week. It is not true though. There is only so much the doctors can do. Once they have done all they can for you, they don't really want to see you any more. I have not heard back about my case, but am looking to a fight I am sure. When you just filled out the paper work and your benefits continued, did they notify you, or just continue with no response? I sent in the papers 1-2 months ago and have not heard anything back. Good luck with your case.
