    My long term disability insurance made an appt for me with Physical Therapists for Functional Capacity tests. I know I must take these tests but fear that whatever I do will make me hurt more.

    Has anyone had to do this and, if so, what do they make you do??

    Thanks.

    I found out at my SS hearing of all the paperwork I had that was the ONE form my judge wanted. I did have one that was initial done when I was first taken out of work that was probably exactly what he wanted to hear, but my lawyer was like no it's to old, it was only 16 months old so I forced him to send it in.
    I would imagine every place is different but some get pretty detailed, with how much weight you can lift and push. how many hours you can stand, sit, kneel etc...I really don't think it can hurt if you are honest.
