Proving an irritable bowel disease case can be very difficult. The Social Security Administration will look for evidence that the condition affects your ability to work. An Ocala Social Security disability lawyer can assist you in developing non-medical evidence as well as documenting the symptoms and side effects that you experience.
Oftentimes, an individual making a claim for inflammatory bowel disease may also experience psychological problems. If you believe your illness is causing such a problem, you will want to contact an Ocala Social Security disability lawyer to review whether a psychological evaluation is appropriate. An evaluation can be helpful even if the psychological impairment does not rise to the level of a qualifying disability.
A common type of irritable bowel disease is irritable bowel syndrome. An Ocala Social Security disability law firm can tell you that this disease has few objective findings on laboratory tests. Instead, someone suffering from the condition can suffer emotional factors, stress, anxiety and other side effects. Similar to other inflammatory bowel diseases, you will want to focus on how the condition disrupts your work and causes you to miss work time.
Your attorney can help you at every phase of your disability application. You may be asked to keep a diary documenting your condition so that you can more fully develop a case. Your attorney can also review your paperwork and speak with your doctors to ensure that you have the supporting evidence that you need.
