    benefit and there is a section in the letter to tell me to bring all meds with me....I do not take meds for the reason that I have found no med that touches my pain (headaches, muscle pain etc) and some even cause me to feel a lot worse or just don't help. I took Atenolol (betablocker) for headaches a couple of years ago and I felt ten times worse! I prefer not to take meds for all the above reasons...
    Will this go against me? I am thinking that they may think I'm not 'that bad' if I don't take meds....just not true!
    A/o have experience of these medicals...there is a bit of stuff about determining whether you are fit to get back to work...I know I'm not! But I am scared of losing my benefits since I have responsibiities...any input anyone...Thanks, Shelbo

    Just wanted to wish you luck~

    I have no experience with this continuation of benifits
    procedure.
    I was re-evaluated once for disability.
    But after they got my current medical records from my Rheumy and primary drs,... they said my benifits would continue.
    Do you regularly see a dr.? (I hope)?


    wish I was more help to you~
