Gonzo from what I know of this ailment I'm sure you would eventually qualify for disability. There is nothing to lose by going for it trust me. I recently got my disabilty but it took like 2 1/2 years but they had to pay me all the back money from day one. I received a very nice lump sum. Just don't get discouraged cause they will turn you down three times then your set up for a face to face interview.Just got to the ss office and apply. Good luck.
