Fatigue and Your Disability Claim
One of the many symptoms of MS is a generalized feeling of fatigue. It’s one of the most frequently cited MS symptoms. If you Google “fatigue” and “MS” you will get over 1.5 million hits and there are over 1,200 scientific papers on this topic alone.
When we represent an MS disability applicant, we make sure that all the symptoms of MS are fully explained in your medical records and will often video tape or audio tape a statement from our clients explaining the symptoms and how they impact their functionality. If you are fatigued and feel like a wet dishrag, you aren’t going to be able to work. We think it’s important that you fully explain all of your symptoms and how the fatigue impacts your functionality if you are going to be successful in your long term disability claim.
