The following examples describe some limitations we may consider in this domain. Your
limitations may be different from the ones listed here. Also, the examples do not
necessarily describe a "marked" or "extreme" limitation. Whether an example applies
in your case may depend on your age and developmental stage; e.g., an example below
may describe a limitation in an older child, but not a limitation in a younger one.
As in any case, your limitations must result from your medically determinable impairment(s).
However, we will consider all of the relevant information in your case record when
we decide whether your medically determinable impairment(s) results in a "marked"
or "extreme" limitation in this domain.
You have generalized symptoms, such as weakness, dizziness, agitation (e.g., excitability),
lethargy (e.g., fatigue or loss of energy or stamina), or psychomotor retardation
because of your impairment(s).
You have somatic complaints related to your impairments (e.g., seizure or convulsive
activity, headaches, incontinence, recurrent infections, allergies, changes in weight
or eating habits, stomach discomfort, nausea, headaches, or insomnia).
You have limitations in your physical functioning because of your treatment (e.g.,
chemotherapy, multiple surgeries, chelation, pulmonary cleansing, or nebulizer treatments).
You have exacerbations from one impairment or a combination of impairments that interfere
with your physical functioning.
You are medically fragile and need intensive medical care to maintain your level of
health and physical well-being.
