Volume 35, Number 7, July 2013 issue of the Social Security Forum, put out by NOSSCR, a District Court reversed an ALJ in Pennsylvania, but the ALJ found that no medical source statement has found that the claimant’s pain was borne out by any diagnosis. However, the medical records did have indications where treatment providers noted that the abdominal pain was likely caused by scar tissue, neuropathy, and nerve damage. The District Court ruled that this meets the standard contained in Social Security regulations, which established that an impairment “could reasonably be expected to produce the pain”.
