You sound just like me i just received a refusal from Social Security On thursday saying I had a desk job and should be able to continue. I am hiring a lawyer. Everyone gets turned down the first time. I have a home, a mortgage etc.I have worked for over 30 years straight, raised 4 children and I am only 52. I was diagnosed last year I had a bone scan because of pain i get in my lower back. My osteo is advanced and yes I have pain every day no seems to understand this. I live on Advil. I am large boned and dont know of any family history. But in my case it is genetic (I think) My sister who is 49 has it too. The first sign of the disease started (little did I know) by my teeth getting loose. Had the dentist told me to get a bone scan 6 years ago I wouldnt be here right now.
Please if anyone could give me any info.or feedback on the pain element of osteoporosis I would be very thankful.I am 45 years old and was Dx.with osteoporosis 5 years ago.I have severe bone pain,their seems to be no relief.I had applied for my social security and have been turned down by the same judge twice,because it is his belief that this bone pain cannot be severe and dibilitating,even though 3 Drs.have said that I am disabled he still refuses to accept or ackknowledge it.The last unfavorable decision came July 19th,my birthday.It seems to me that people need to be made aware of the severe bone pain associated with this disease.If anyone can help please email me.This has totaly disabled me,since I was the primary income it has devastated us.We even may lose our home.What I am trying to do is get as much info.as possible to try and fight his decision before we lose everything.Thank You Patricia Harrod Groundhog@mciworld.com
