I have ibs, colitis, acid reflux, hypothyroidism(radioidione treatment), anxiety, carpal tunnel both hands, arthritis and pinched nerve in back, narcolepsy and depression.
As I have told several judges, diagnoses does not equal disability (usually). Instead, the question is how your medical impairments impact your ability to engage in sustained work activity. That, along with your age, education and past work history are the most important factors. I suggest you have a detailed conversation with a highly rated disability attorney in your area. Then you will know how to best proceed. Make certain to avoid those who are not lawyers such as "advocates" or "intake specialists" or the like.
