I’ve never met anyone who was approved for disability for Lyme disease.

But I have met plenty of people with Lyme disease who got approved!

What did you get approved for?

🐦 “Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis”

🐦 “Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Bipolar disorder”

🐦 “Rheumatoid Arthritis, Degenerative Disc disease, Fibromyalgia”

🐦 “Psychiatric diagnosis”

🐦 “Fibromyalgia and Psychiatric Diagnosis”

🐦 “Neurological Lyme, POTS and respiratory problems”

🐦 “Lyme Disease, Encephalopathy, chronic head and neck pain, and cognitive difficulties”

🐦 “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia”

🐦 “Fibromyalgia, Depressive Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Cardiac Arrhythmia, Bursitis, Orthostasis, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”

What kind of doctor was most helpful for your approval?

🐦 Neuorologist

🐦 Rheumatologist

🐦 Psychologist/Psychiatrist

🐦 Neuropsychiatric Testing

🐦 Occupational Medicine Doctor

What doctor was not helpful?

Social Security does not consider these doctor’s to be acceptable medical sources. In some cases, their records will help a lot and in other cases they may be ignored:

🐦 Naturopathic doctors

🐦 Counselors/Therapists

🐦 Physical/Occupational Therapists
