Get Relief For Migraines

“It’s only a headache.”

Have you ever heard that line? If you suffer from severe, persistent migraines, you know that anyone who dismisses them as “only a headache” has no idea what they are talking about. Migraines can be so debilitating that your entire life grinds to a halt from the nausea, auras, light sensitivity and excruciating pain. Some people are lucky enough to respond to medication, but others do not. You may need Social Security Disability benefits to support yourself.

At Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, our attorneys guide people through the benefits application process from beginning to end. We can help you procure the necessary documentation and strengthen your application. With hundreds of clients throughout Wisconsin, we can help you, too. You do not have to pay until we secure benefits for you.

Do Migraines Actually Qualify For Benefits?

Yes, they do. While migraines are not specifically listed in the conditions recognized by Social Security Disability, if you can definitively prove that your migraines prevent you from maintaining regular employment, then you have a case.

Documentation Is Key

If you have 100 migraines a year, do you go into the doctor’s office every single time? Probably not. You close the curtains, lay down on your couch, take your pain medication and tough it out.

Unfortunately, this exact scenario can diminish your chances of success in obtaining SSD benefits from the Social Security Administration. Many people who suffer from intense, regular migraines base their disability claim on how frequently they would have to miss work. However, there is usually not a matching medical record that confirms the high number of migraines a person actually has.

To solve this problem, you will need to create documentation. Here are some suggestions:

  • Keep a migraine calendar
    Every time you experience a migraine, record the date, duration and intensity. This will help build the documentation you need.
  • Be (fully) honest with your doctor
    Many people who suffer from migraines are used to brushing them aside and carrying on with life as best they can. When a doctor asks how they are doing, they might say they are fine, when in reality they are not. Do not do this. Instead, be honest with your doctor, especially regarding the frequency and intensity of your migraines. Your doctor’s medical notes will be crucial in your benefits application, so you want to be sure that they confirm the truth of your condition, rather than call it into question.

Get The Help You Need To Strengthen Your Claim

Crafting a successful benefits application for persistent migraines is difficult, but it can be done. Our lawyers are intimately familiar with the eligibility requirements and will work with you to give you the best chance of success to obtain benefits right away or obtain benefits after appealing a denied claim.

If you have questions, please reach out through our online form or else call our office: 1-855-NICOLET. We have locations throughout Wisconsin, including Hudson and Eau Claire.
