I filed a short-term disability claim and my doctor wants me to write up a list of my limitations for the form she has to submit. The insurance company says it's not enough to use terms like "prolonged" or "repetitive" and that my limitations need to be quantified. I looked up examples of restrictions and limitations so I understand it's things like sitting, standing, walking, bending, lifting, concentrating etc but I'm not sure how to quantify them. I know I could say things like "cannot lift more than 10lbs" or "walk more than x distance" but it's really hard to come up with numbers. Does anyone have experience with this and could you share examples?
