Q It’s been a year since I was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease and I still have a very hard time doing my job like I once used to. I applied for SSDI in Boston but was denied. Now I’m ready to appeal. What medical records do I have to show for my Meniere’s disease to get Social Security disability in Boston?
Meniere’s disease can significantly limit your ability to do your job. When an episode strikes, you may become sick and unable to work at your computer, talk to your co-workers, or think clearly. Although the Meniere’s disease disables your abilities on the job, it can be difficult to show that to the Social Security office and get approved for Boston Social Security for Meniere’s disease.
When you file your appeal, it is important to include medical paperwork and documentation that show the frequency and duration of your Meniere’s disease episodes. This includes showing:
- How frequently you get episodes of vertigo
- The extent of tinnitus or the ringing in your ears that you suffer from
- Vestibular test results showing any damage to the inner ear
- Any loss of hearing you have experienced shown through tone and speech audiometry
To have your Meniere’s disease qualify for Social Security disability in Boston, a lot of factors will have to be taken into consideration. Making a compelling case for the Social Security to approve you for SSDI in Boston can be difficult.
