SSDI sending me for evaluation. Advice please in Dysautonomia Discussion Posted August 10 · Report reply 1 hour ago, Pistol said: @Derek1987 I also believe that it would be beneficial to you to see an autonomic specialist at this time. If you apply for SSDI based on anxiety your psychiatrists eval may be enough but you will be assessed on that diagnosis. If you want them to consider the syncope/ dysautonomia as a reason for disability you should see a specialist ( I understand that you say the physician that is seeing you for your dysautonomia symptoms is a specialist but if the treatment is not working I personally would seek a second opinion ). Yeah i see an autonomic specialist and im still the same. This is her bio if you are interested. https://semmes-murphey.2dimes.com/debbie-turner I was offered to go to vanderbilt initially but in my ignorance i was like well if i have a specialist here in my city, ill just see her. But now im officially iust waiting to go to vanderbilt after my recent referral. If i get denied, thats when i know my attorney will really start to help me. Like i said, i did explain i have autonomic dysfunction and it causes this, this and this. Social security might of zoned in on anxiety because they feel my autonomic dysfunction doesnt meet the criteria of disability. Who knows but thats where my attorney can help me. Either way, ill win eventually unless i get better. I hope i can talk to my examiner and be like my anxiety isnt just mental, its physical. My test results prove it. And describe what autonomic dysfunction is. If i can explain my condition, that will help me out. If not, idk. We will see what happens.
