HI Everyone,

I am currently applying for SSDI and put heart problems as one of my sympotms. Of course, it has never been recorded (sneaky Lyme). I currently getting weird beats. Should I go to the hospital to have it recorded for disablitly?? Will that help me get approved SSDI if they record weird heart beats?? Will it help me get approved faster or is it not worth it??

Cali, are you having SHORTNESS OF BREATH NOW, ANY NUMBING OF ARM/HANDS? PAIN IN CHEST???


If so have someone drive you to ER IMMEDIATELY or call them so ambulance crew can start working on you!

I'll send you by PM between 10-15 pages of SSDI disability detailed info to help you on your SSDI journey.

If you go to hospital and tests show things going on with you, your MD will have to determine how your heart effects your PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS:

sitting, walking, lifting, bending, crawling, climbing, using your hands, etc.

and the amount of time you can spend DOING EACH OF THESE for 2 hrs., 4, 6, and all day.

Now if you are experiencing what I described above CALL 911 or have a family member/neighbor take you to ER NOW!

I'm NOT A MD; just know many of symptoms from my neighbor's incident. Betty [confused]

Why doesnt your Dr record this?

If your Dr or MD or GP records this, isnt that enough?

i agree with both betty and health. Hospital now if symptoms she describes are present. Dont go to hospital just for "recording" of symptoms. Go coz you need to. Dont fool yourself into thinking this is about disability when you really are sick and need to take care of yourself! That makes me so mad at SSDI!! grrrrrrrr
please let us know,
