People with autoimmune diseases or pain disorders may look OK and often function normally for short periods. There are good days and bad days. But when the pain or exhaustion kicks in, work becomes unbearable or impossible.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) recognizes a number of these medical conditions as qualifying impairments. But claims for fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and similar conditions are routinely denied for lack of supporting medical records.
Dennis Kenny Law, handles SSDI and SSI claims in the Hudson Valley, the Albany area, NYC and statewide New York.
Complex SSDI Claims For Autoimmune Diseases And Pain Disorders
Our autoimmune disease attorneys have helped many clients win benefits for these conditions when the symptoms interfere with the ability to hold a steady job:
- Rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis
- Multiple sclerosis
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Migraines or chronic headaches
- Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), aka reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD)
The Social Security Administration has identified specific criteria for these disorders, but the symptoms vary widely from person to person, and yours may not fit neatly into the SSA's definitions. We also know that doctors and even family members can be skeptical, especially when there are no outward symptoms or medical tests are inconclusive.
We work closely with you and your providers to chronicle your diagnosis, treatment and the debilitating effects of your disease. What is the pain level? What are the symptoms? What are the patterns and triggers? How did it affect you in the workplace? Have you made a work attempt since first leaving your job?
