To prove multiple sclerosis, the medical evidence must objectively support a diagnosis of MS. Applicants must prove the existence of a severe “medically determinable” physical or mental impairment to qualify for disability benefits, which is typically proven through medical evidence that may include objective symptoms but requires more objective medical evidence. Thus, an impairment established solely on the existence of symptoms is insufficient to establish a disability. Social Security will accept reasonable evidence for the diagnosis if it’s consistent with the findings of most doctors.
A disability claim for multiple sclerosis (MS) must include a diagnosis of the MS typically through a magnetic resonance imaging test (MRI), spinal tap or lumbar puncture. If severe fatigue and weakness are caused by MS, the report of a doctor must show that the fatigue and weakness are a result of the MS. Typically, white matter lesions involving the connecting nerve bundles in the brain are present, however, this in and of itself is not diagnostic. To detect damage to the optic nerve, abnormalities in the brain’s electrical response to flashing lights may be measured.
