What is the most effective way to apply for Social Security Disability and get approved? Please Read!!?
My Girlfriend has missed a lot of time from work and is not able to hold a job for long for nausea and vomiting. We have been to a gastro-intestinal specialist, family practice doctors and specialist to find out the source of why she is vomiting and they do not know a cause. She was diagnose with pancreatitis which is a inflammation of the pancreas that causes violent vomiting and nausea but then another doctors say that she does not have pancreatitis. We thought it was Gaul stones, acid reflux but they said that was not it. In other words she still suffering for vomiting and throwing up and the one drug that does work with stopping it makes her extremely drowsy and tire. She needs to apply for Social Security Disability and I know they give an option to file on line but how can we find a doctor that will take the time to help her with getting the right paper work to get approved She has one minor child that she may be able to get benefits for under her own claim. Any good suggestions?

as far as I know your gf can go herself to the ssa an apply she will either be granted benefits or denied. If granted great thats one less worry on her.
