Listing of Impairments – Medical Proof of a Respiratory Impairments | New Port Richey Social Security Disability Lawyer

If you have filed a claim for social security benefits for a respiratory impairment, it is important that your medical records contain a complete medical history, results of your physical examination, chest x-rays, pulmonary function tests to show if your gas exchange abnormalities contribute to the severity of your respiratory impairment.

Your symptoms and what problems you have with every day living are an important part of your medical records. If you have shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, chest pain, sputum production, or other symptoms of respiratory problems, make sure it is documented in your medical records. You may want to keep a diary of your symptoms and give them to your doctor and the Social Security Administration.

It is also important that your medical records document the problem you’re having with your activities of daily living as a result of your respiratory symptoms. If you are limited in your ability to do physical activity such as walking, climbing stairs, and dealing with temperature changes make sure that is documented in your medical chart.

Social Security Disability claims based on respiratory impairments can be won at the listing level Section 3.0 Respiratory Systems with appropriate documentation and test results. If you suffer from respiratory impairments and aare going to file a claim, I strongly suggest you seek the help of an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer such as Nancy Cavey or Sharon Barrett.
