: I have had peripheral neuropathy for 3yrs. now and is continually worsening..My feet are so senestive to touch and pressure that I can barely walk or stand for more than 15min...I had to quit working due to pain and the meds.make me so dizzy and drugged out that I can barely function..Life is becoming very trying..A psychologist suggested that I try a chat group to find others with same problems. I know of no one with this.Also does any have any info on qualifying for social security disability with neuropathy? I have been through 2 denials and was scheduled for appt. with judge,my lawyer sent me for psychology work up--the judge remanded my case back to S.S for another review and I have been waiting 4mos. for decision..Has anyone gotten disability with this or is it impossible----I'm about ready to give up.

Joyce don't give up, I applied for DLA last year and was deinied. I applied because I am on Kidney dialysis and suffered Neuropathy in my legs this caused mobility problems. Eventually after alot of bugging they finially said I could have DLA. This was my third time of asking and about a thousand letters and phone calls to check where my appeal was in the list. So hang in there. Email me if you want the story in full there alot more info I could tell you about the DLA
