Re: Disability for carpal tunnel syndrome/cubital tunnel syndrome

Hi Estella....I do know of someone who did get SSDI for carpal tunnel/cubital tunnel but she had to fight for it with a lawyer for about 4-5 years. Had to prove why she couldn't have the surgery to correct it and not that she just didn't want it.......needed to prove that she couldn't. And you can't work during that time. And you don't get Medicare until it is approved.

That was a good 8-10 years ago so now, who knows?

Just my 2 cents.
