Proving a Social Security disability claim for chronic pain is challenging because it is very difficult to measure pain symptoms by laboratory findings. The majority of pain cases are based on subjective evidence. If you are applying for disability benefits based on chronic pain, you must hire an Ocala Social Security disability lawyer to help you provide the necessary information the Social Security Administration (SSA) needs to award you disability benefits.
To qualify for Social Security disability benefits for chronic pain, you must first demonstrate to the SSA that you have a severe, “medically determinable” physical or mental disability. In other words, your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer must be able to provide medical proof that includes objective evidence of pain symptoms in order to support your claim of chronic pain.
The second requirement you must satisfy is to prove that your impairment has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of at least 12 months. In order to establish this, your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer will advise you to have repeated diagnoses based on examinations by your treating physicians over the course of more than one year.
