Multiple sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis (MS) can be difficult to diagnose.  Once diagnosed, many people can lead productive lives for years before permanent limitations set in.  Disability attorneys will look for neurological examinations, including confirmatory MRI’s, to confirm the diagnosis and progression of your MS.  It is very important to spend time with your doctors so they understand and document all your symptoms.  The documented nature and frequency of your MS symptoms in your medical records can make or break a claim for Social Security benefits, particularly if there is a deadline to prove disability (“date last insured”).
