Medical Conditions and Social Security Disability

I've decided to compile a number of pages (perhaps quite a few actually) that provide information on many of the impairments that are often indicated on applications for disability. Over time, of course, this list will grow and, hopefully, the information found via this root index will be helpful to others.

Included on this page are both mental and physical conditions and impairments, some of which are included in the SSA listing manual, and some of which are not. For those who are not aware, the "blue book", as the manual is called, lists the approval criteria for a number of different medical conditions. However, not every condition is listed, and, in fact, the majority are not, including some well known conditions such as fibromyalgia.

Can you be approved if you are filing on the basis of a condition that is not inluded in the manual. Yes, and most claimants who are awarded benefits are approved in this way, even claimants who actually have a condition that is listed in the book.

This manner of approval is known as a medical vocational allowance which essentially means that a claimant has been approved after the determination has been made that, based on the claimant's medical evidence, they are no longer able to work (at one of their former jobs or at any other type of job) and that their condition has either lasted, or will last, for at least one full year.
