It's all about the symptoms. If your doctor will document the conditions that would keep you from doing your existing job, you have a chance. SSDI also can recommend you for job counseling to find a job you can do with your "ailments."
Your age is a factor also
But if you have too many things that would disqualify you from doing your existing or new job, then you may qualify.
Chances are you will be denied, then you appeal. They deny almost everyone the first time.
A SSDI lawyer is very helpful, too. Yes, they take their cut but the won't take the case unless they feel they can win it for you.
