Can my therapist help me to treat my multiple sclerosis symptoms that make it hard to work?

ANSWER

If your MS symptoms make it hard to do your job, your therapist can take you through some tests and document the kind of trouble you're having. Therapists call this a functional capacity evaluation. It measures whether you can work an 8-hour day and may help if you need to apply for Social Security disability benefits.
