Living with Your Pain | Social Security Disability Lawyer in Tampa
When you apply for Social Security Disability you are going to be asked about your ability to function on a daily basis. Even though you may live with your pain everyday, the Social Security Administration has no idea what your day is like unless you tell them.
It’s important when you complete any Social Security Disability forms that you explain:
1. The nature of your pain.
2. The location.
3. How often you have pain and how long it lasts.
4. What may trigger your pain.
5. What impact the pain has on your ability to function around your home.
6. Side effects of your medication.
Please be sure to explain how your pain impacts on your ability to sit, stand, bend, stoop, walk, concentrate and get along with others. I suggest that you take your typical day and describe what you are physically capable of doing, what pain you experience and that limits your ability to function.
Being able to discuss and explain your opinion on your Social Security Disability application and to an Administrative Law Judge is key to winning to your Social Security Disability case.
