I am trying to get Social Security Disability since I haven't worked in two years because of Lyme issues.  I started the process in May 09.  I am going through a law firm that specializes in SSDI cases.  In August I had a mental exam by a state appointed psychiatrist. Tomorrow I am seeing a MD appointed by the state.
 
Anyone else have this physical exam by a state appointed MD?   What should I expect?

The only thing I've ever been through was the psych questions. What exactly are they looking for with a physical exam?

I am not sure. My lawyer said it was not unusual for them to schedule physical exam. He said they have a form from the state that they fill out.

I'll let you know how it goes.

They sent me to there doctor to do an exam.... he apparently wrote that I was able to do sedentary work....  The judge disagreed with him and agreed with what my docs had to say...which basically said i could not do any type of employement...  They will ask you questions like how long to sit, stand, what can you lift etc, etc...  Just make sure they have your docs med records and what their opinion is

I went thru a physical exam.... Just the ususal; temp. bp, ht., wt., follow my finger, tap on the knee, look in the ears, eyes..... and that was it. Just a 10 minute exam.

Hopes this helps.
