What Every Lyme Disease Social Security Disability Applicant Needs To Know About Their Medical Records

Lyme Disease Social Security Disability Claims

The Social Security Administration (SSA) doesn’t always make it easy for those with Lyme disease to get the disability benefits they deserve. Because Lyme disease can be difficult to diagnose, the SSA will closely review your medical records to determine whether the symptoms are consistent with the diagnosis of Lyme disease. That’s crucial because Lyme disease has been referred to as an “imitator” as it mimics other medical conditions which can make it difficult to diagnose and treat.

What Are The Symptoms SSA Expects To See In Your Medical Records

The Social Security Administration will be looking for the following symptoms of Lyme disease in your medical records:

Musculoskeletal system

 joint pain and swelling
 stiffness of joints, including back and neck
 muscle pain
 twitching of facial and other muscles

Neurological symptoms

 persistent and severe headache
 numbness or tingling
 weakness or partial paralysis
 weakness or dizziness
 burning or stabbing pains
 speech difficulty

Vision Symptoms

 blurred or double vision
 sensitivity to light

Hearing Symptoms

 tinnitus

Psychological Symptoms

 mood swings and irritability
 depression
 anxiety
 panic attacks

General Symptoms

 extreme fatigue
 swollen or painful lymph glands
 skin changes including nodules
 flu-like symptoms
 insomnia or sleeping too much
 short or long term memory loss
 confusion including difficulty thinking

Make sure your Social Security application and your medical records document your Lyme disease symptoms and how those symptoms impact your ability to function.
