I don't know a whole lot about ssi and it's funny you mention this because the same has been suggested for me for a long time. What I do know is that you should go back to your doctor and let him know that he will need to provide you as much data on your specific case as possible.
Also that your primary application will be denied, and you'll have to appeal. I'm only repeating this because I've heard it so many times. I'd file myself, yet, my medical history is scattered all over the place and I've no real interest in the hassle. Whoever it is that's going to be issuing you ssd ( not ssi )is going to have make a clinical determination that you really are disabled because of your CH. The little bit of here-and-there investigation I've done into it, actually as far as I can tell ruled me out of eligibility, because I'm not crippled or crazy or blind, meanig, I don't know exactly how chronic headaches will figure in such a case. This is why it is important to have your doctor build a case for you. Visit your local SS office and pick some literature on the subject. That will give youa better perspective of exactly where you stand. Above all else, don't ask anyone there anything until you're ready to apply and have your case ready. You'll be told a whole lot of stuff that either won't be accurate, inconsistant with something else, or just inapplicable to your specifics. I wish I could've been of more help here, but here's a link that might be of more help ( if I've inserted it properly).
