In order to be found disabled, you must have a medical or psychiatric condition or a combination of conditions that prevent you from working. Social Security will evaluate whether your documented medical conditions cause either exertional limitations or non-exertional limitations or a combination of both that will keep you from working not only at your past job but at any other full-time work. Exertional limitations are also referred to as physical or strength limitations which may include restrictions in your ability to sit, stand, walk, or lift and carry objects. Nonexertional limitations may include mental conditions such as depression or anxiety, symptoms such as pain, limitations in remembering or understanding, seeing or hearing, or postural limitations. Environmental restrictions such as inability to work around dust or fumes would also be a nonexertional limitation.
