Neuropathy & applying for Disability
Has anyone applied for social security disability due to their neuropathy pain and restrictions from it? I’ve applied and was just declined. Which I knew would happen. I’ve had peripheral neuropathy for about 13 years. I don’t sleep but maybe 3 hours. I’m on lyrica and medical marijuana in gummy form. Doesn’t help much. But I decided to apply for disability on the advise of my doctors. Who all support the decision. My balance is off. My pain is 24/7. My cognitive skills have suffered. I can’t stand or walk more than 15-30 minutes at a time. Just doing basic housework is a problem. Then there’s the side affects of lyrica which is swelling in my feet. And side affects of the gummies which are feelings of lethargy.
Just wondering if anyone has applied for disability due to their neuropathy.
