Hi Everyone. I am new to this board and am trying to read as much as I can to continue to educate myself on a number of medical conditions I have. Since I am recently being evaluated and treated for more of my fibro issues, I have come here for support as well. I have a lot of medical issues going on and have not been able to get the pain, burning, stiffness, and inflexibility under control. I am coming out of denial and have applied for SSDI. I am dealing with RA, OA, Osteoporosis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Fibromyalgia, RLS, Raynauds, etc. Does anyone know if multiple disabling diseases and age will make the decision from SS go faster. I am almost 59. Thanks; sorry for the long note.
