I got a letter in the mail from the Social Security Administration today. In it, they informed me that they have changed the rules for how they consider appeals to pending claims.
As of the date of the letter (last week), I have to be able to show that any new evidence I might submit to substantiate my claim IS DIRECTLY TIED TO THE TIME PERIOD in question for my claim. Keeping a log of my migraines is now rendered irrelevant, unless I can document that the entire medical profession was aware that the medicines I was told to take to manage my hip/leg pain in 1980 (after the bone tumor surgery) were known to potentially cause the migraines I’m getting now.
Does anyone have access to a 1980 copy of the Physician’s Desk Reference? I need a copy – the whole book, so they can’t claim that it came out of a different (later) copy.
