Ok guys I've got a question. I've been on disability for a year now. My LTD carrier approved me almost immediately so they don't seem to have a question about my disability. My SSD claim is on appeal which is pretty normal I guess. And the LTD's lawyer picked up the appeal so I guess they feel they have a decent chance of getting approval. So an insurance company and a lawyer seem to feel my disability is legitimate.
My problem is my neurologist. I have been seeing him for almost two years now. When I see him (every month because of insurance requirement) I feel like he is doubting me. We have tried many medications but I have had complications with each. Other treatments have been ruled out by specialists.
What I noticed along the way is that certain anti-depressants that I was trying for pain relief had the side effect of calming me. I'd really like to try them again but don't know how to ask him. I feel that if I explain this to him he will think I am just looking for a new problem to add to my SSD claim. It sure wouldn't hurt the claim but it's not my primary reason for wanting to try this.
I need to stay with this neurologist until next Spring because of my no-fault claim. I've thought about looking for another but don't want to complicate things. So I'm trying to figure out how to speak to him about this without making him think it's an insurance ploy. Any ideas?
