Social Security tightens down on disability claims

Objective medical evidence of degenerative disc disease, diabetes, COPD, depression and other mental health issues, back problems, congestive heart failure, kidney disease, liver disease, Hep-C, fibromyalgia, learning disabilities, chronic pain, PTSD, peripheral artery disease, can all lead to the inability to work. These conditions can cause a wide range of limitations. The judges who decide the cases frequently must decide how much of the applicants testimony to believe. Credibility becomes exceedingly important in the evaluation. Keeping a log of daily symptoms helps build that credibility. The log need not be elaborate or eloquent. It only needs to provide you a method to explain your symptoms over many months.
These logs will help win your appeal of the denied reconsideration.
