I have severe nerve damage in my left ankle and foot. I've also dx of osteoarthritis, IBS, and severe RLS. It was the one foot though, that started all this craziness. For nearly 2 years I've not worked - most days it is all I can do to get dishes washed and food cooked. I never sleep well, my main problem is brain fog and just constant pain. If it isn't the fibro, it is the foot. Anyway, I am terribly nervous. I need to file disability right away, while I still can. (I think there is some 10 year rule where you have to work so much out of 10 years?) Anyway, my husband is really pushing me to do it. I'm terribly afraid they will deny me and it will just cause me more stress. I don't really know where to start. I don't know even how to bring it up to my doctor. Can anyone help me or advise me? What do I do if my doctor says NO? I still want to work, but the last job I got ended in disaster because my first week, my foot went bonkers and I couldn't walk and had to be out! I just quit. It was crazy.
