Tips for seizure and epilepsy Social Security disability cases



Attorney Anthony Reeves writes about what to do and not to do when applying for Social Security disability benefits for a seizure disorder (whether due to epilepsy or pseudo-seizures).

Most people think that epilepsy is so traumatic that an individual should be approved fairly easily.  Due to its unpredictability, the symptoms can affect you in a variety of different ways.   Despite the severity of this condition, it is difficult to demonstrate that the condition can prevent from performing work on a full time basis.

Anthony provides a list of 5 things you should do to improve your chances of winning:

  1. Track how often you have seizures.
  2. Take your medications. 
  3. Track your after-effects.
  4. Track your restrictions.
  5. Don’t minimize or exaggerate your symptoms.

These are great tips and I encourage everyone to read Anthony’s article on this topic.
