: 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.

I am terriably sorry it has taken you so long to get disability. Mine came thru the first time. My
neurologist said he got a call directly from ss. I received my letter 2 weeks later. I know that
I am one of the special ones if there is such a thing with neuropathy. I have idiopathic poly-
neuropathy complicated with everything else including asthma. My whole left side is numb
and it is progressing to my right side. My mother who had an amputated leg got refused once.
Go figure. Just hang in there maybe have your neurologist talk to ss. Maybe that will help.
