Pain is common and important factor contributing to functional loss and proof of a disability case. If pain affects an individual’s ability to perform basic work activities it must be considered by the Social Security Administration if it is supported by medical evidence of a condition that could be reasonably be expected to produce the pain or other symptoms. It is difficult to easily categorize the intensity and persistence of pain; however, if your physician finds a medical condition that could produce pain, he/she will often verify the practical impact of the pain based on interaction with you, the patient. In these situations, it is important to have the advice of a knowledgeable attorney to provide guidance in the best way for this evidence to be developed.
