Over the years I have handled numerous Social Security disability claims for people who suffer from migraine headaches. For those of us lucky enough not to get migraines, it can be difficult to understand just how debilitating this condition can be.

 Too Many Missed Days Of Work

In the realm of Social Security disability, migraines are significant because they interfere with

the ability of a person to get to work often enough to stay employed. Many people with migraine headaches will miss several days of work a month. This is because when these terrible headaches strike, the person has to lie down in a dark room and avoid all such stimulus as light and sound.  Most vocational experts agree that if a person misses more than one or two days of work per month no one will keep him or her as an employee.

There are some new migraine treatments that are just now arriving. Two new drugs are in the late stages of human testing. Both of these drugs take a novel approach to not only treating migraines but also preventing them. The actual scientific details of how the new drugs work is beyond my understanding.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
