Hi There,

I am sorry to hear that. I would recommend gathering as much medical documentation as you can.

Best Wishes,

Hi Garry,

Congrats on getting approved! However I am unsure of if you would you get your date changed, but the more physical evidence you have the better your chances are.

I got diagnosed with MS back in October and my neurologist told me my MRI showed I also had a degenerating spine. I also suffer from severe depression and anxiety. I got denied and I got myself a lawyer who helped me file a reconsideration paperwork. Last month I receieved a letter from my insurance saying I am medically frail, which I am trying to figure out if that is good for my case or not.

Hi Kayla,

The more medical evidence you have of your condition the better your chances are of winning your disability case.

Update: So they said I should hear something by Tuesday and if not to call them. The nice lady said everything looks good and they got all the paperwork they needed so hopefully I get some good news.

I got a denial letter today. Says I am disabled now but not expected to last a year. I stopped work Dec 2016, applied 1/2017, decision but sent to quality review 7/26, denied. So now comes reconsideration...I wore braces on my back as a kid, have MRI showing ruptured disc & DDD in 2007, have new diagnosis of Fibromyalgia on top of 5 separate spine disorders, autoimmune disease, severe anxiety and 30 yr history of depression, new spine injections, new (worsening) x-rays, new added anxiety & pain meds.
QUESTION #1: file reconsideration immediately or wait til late October (w/in 60 days) as I hear reconsideration takes 8 weeks. At that point I will have been off work a year.
QUESTION #2: Since my initial application went to quality review, will reconsideration and any action henceforth go to them too?

Also, was scheduled for Psychological CE but they cancelled it the day before, then called me to ask who do I see for depression & anxiety. Primary care doctor now. Have been to cardiologist, urgent care & ER for chest pain that seemed to be anxiety attack. Saw a Psych RN for 6 months for crisis 5 years ago. She says her records (stored in her garage!) we're destroyed in hurricane Matthew.
QUESTION#3: should I go with lack of development of depression & anxiety diagnosis as a reason to appeal? Or just go with documentation of continued worstening of conditions they acknowledged as disabling already?

I was receiving SSD and then it was taken away from me saying that I work too many hours are made too much for that quarter I received a letter a couple of days ago saying that I guess the request for reconsideration was approved and that amount a used to be am I entitled to get my back pay from the months that they did not give it to me

What's on my mind is this I started my disability claim back in 2007 from injury edge in my lower back and my left shoulder and mental health issues I'm going on my third time filing an appeal and everything this decision they denied most recently was based on 2007 evidence but I told him I was drunk when I filed I was struck by car back in 2013 my head went through a windshield of a car I was going to bicycle and struck by a car life-flighted knockout 17 hours major brain trauma separated right shoulder three and a half inches why did they go make services in off 2007 medical when I've had all this other stuff done to me and it was all the stuff was taken back in August of 2017 I was denied in September 2017 plus I have made your mental health issues what do I need to do I paid into this shit
