Question PPS Confusion

I applied for SSI benefits years ago, and, of course, was denied. Gave up on it and went back to work. When I went to the SSI Doctor for his "interview" I was asked what made me think I had even had polio. I was so flabergasted I couldn't even answer him. All of my medical records from 1959 and the years I spent at a Children's Hospital having corrective surgergies on my lower right leg and foot had been destroyed. No proof of the diagnosis existed.
I am currently experiencing neck and shoulder problems from overuse syndrome and will be going to see Pain Management Physician. I am not looking forward to hearing what he will say to me. I have already limited a lot of my activities to see if that will help with the pain. I use heat and massage therapy as well. I have applied, once again, for Disability, however, I do not expect to receive the benefits. Thinking of returning to work since I do not like being a non-contributor financially. That Type A personality going on.

Hi, welcome aboard. This is my understanding of post polio- first of all have you been dx'd by a doctor and have the latest records? I have not even though I know alot of what is going on is contributed by the polio....

If you are applying for SSD for polio just list that doctor and that information. The best to you..
