  • Very interesting info. Thanks for sharing. I'm thinking I should move to PR before filing :)
  • Wow where I am they approve around 30%. Very worrisome. I'm not there yet but can't imagine being able to work a lot longer.
  • I was approved before going to ALJ, probably by about 6 months. I believe the information that got me over the hurdle was Objective Medical Evidence. Which proved that my symptoms matched my diagnosis via EMG. Be sure that if you have ongoing pain after your surgery, ie, radiculopathy, get a EMG, it can put the nail in the coffin, so to speak. Good Luck!!!
  • if i ever find out when and wear i will look it up thanks.
    i think my emg is what is holding my case up it say no nerve damage just sensory nerve may be damaged ? (ya a moron did the test)i think your right if it say motor nerve damage i would be in like flint .the 3 mri's say nerve compromise,ddd,annular tear,granulation tissue in spinal canal,disc herniation's l4-5 and l5-s1 has it in 2 different locations with significant s1 nerve deviation,and significant neuro foramen compromise,please correlate with physical findings.
    my last mri i think will be the heavy hitter. to me it looks way worse than the first one witch i had surgery to repair .
    the pain clinic i went to to see about injections say they could do a new emg but the med treatment would be the same no mater what the emg say ,they say in less a doc that is good doing the test that the results are not usually right.
