Autonomic Neuropathy and Disability Benefits

Posted by on in Social Security Disability

Autonomic neuropathy is a group of different symptoms occurring when there is damage to the nervous system. More specifically, autonomic neuropathy makes it very difficult for the body to manage day to day bodily functions. It is not uncommon for someone suffering from autonomic neuropathy to have digestive problems, uncontrollable hypertension, or heart problems. For this reason, it can often take many years to be correctly diagnosed by a doctor, such as a neurologist.

People applying for Social Security disability benefits suffering from autonomic neuropathy can struggle to get their claims approved. There is no specific listing for autonomic neuropathy. Instead, a claimant has to meet other listings depending on their specific condition. The effects of autonomic neuropathy can be quite debilitating and the treatment long-term. It is usually all of the different effects of the condition that prevent a claimant from working. The symptoms can include: diarrhea, irregular heart rhythm, excessive sweating, fatigue, nausea, difficulty swallowing, abdominal pain, and many others.

If you suffer from autonomic neuropathy and are applying for Social Security disability benefits, it is highly recommended that you seek out a Social Security disability lawyer near you to get more information on the issues of your particular claim. Autonomic neuropathy is a very serious and potentially disabling condition.
