Your doctor can be very helpful to your Social Disability Case.

Some doctors are reluctant to become involved in Social Security Disability cases because they do not understand the process.

They do not necessarily have to become an advocate in your case.

They do not even have to write a supporting letter for you.

If you remember to tell your doctor about your limitations each time you go for a visit, it can be very helpful.

For instance, telling your doctor that your back pain is constant and feels better when you elevate your feet to waist height a couple hours a day may find its way into the medical records after you tell her several times.

Telling your doctor about that your pain medications cause drowsiness and loss of concentration is also important.

Or that your hands and fingers experience numbness and tingling most of the day.

Limitations are the name of the game in Social Security Disability.

Remember to tell your doctor.
