I have not worked in almost two years now because of severe nerve damage to my back and right leg. The lawyer who is handling the case told me that I am looking at 15 months just to see a judge. Is this common? Also there have been several things to my advantage but Social Security continues to deny my application two times so far. I was sent for a IQ test a few weeks ago and the gentleman said my IQ was second grade level. The Pain Management Dr that I have been seeing for the last two years is on my side but it looks like Social Security is trying to question his methods of treatment. I take some of the strongest pain medicines that a person can take three times a day. I have slept 4 hours a day for the last two years. I am also in the process of debating if I want to have a second surgery to have a Spinal Cord Stimulator placed near my spine to help the nerve pain. I tell you I wish it all would just end people. It is sad that people all over the world pay into this and when we get hurt and we cant work we half to fight tooth and nail with these people. Good Old Government !
