6. How do I win my Social Security case?

Go to the doctor when you need to or whenever the doctor recommends.  Tell the doctor the issues you are having and be specific.  Make sure the doctor knows if you have difficulty sitting, standing, walking or lifting and carrying things.  Make sure the doctor knows if you must lie down during the day because of fatigue or for pain relief.  It may be helpful to let you doctor know you are applying for disability.  Make sure the doctor is making notes of what you say – disability determinations are largely determined by your medical records.
