Allergic Vasculitis and Receiving Social Security Disability
Vasculitis is a wide, sweeping term that refers to a group of uncommon diseases that are evidenced by inflammation of your blood vessels. Your vascular system refers to the blood vessels of your body. Your blood vessels are composed of arteries that carry oxygen-rich blood to your bodys tissues, and veins that return oxygen-depleted blood from your tissues to your lungs for oxygen. Vasculitis is marked by inflammation in and damage to the walls of various blood vessels in your body.
Each one of this group of diseases is characterized by distribution of blood vessel involvement, certain patterns of particular organ involvement and laboratory test abnormalities. As a group, these diseases are referred to as vasculitides.
Allergic Vasculitis is one of the many types of vasculitis. It is hypersensitivity to a foreign substance or drug. This results in damage and inflammation to the blood vessels of your skin.
Fortunately, allergic vasculitis is a rare disease. It affects about 6 in every 100,000 people in the United States. Most of the people with this disease are over the age of 15.
Allergic vasculitis is also referred to by other names. It is also called hypersensitivity vasculitis, leukocytoclastic vasculitis and cutaneous vasculitis.
As mentioned earlier, allergic vasculitis is caused by an allergic reaction or hypersensitivity to a drug or another foreign substance. However, even with a complete medical history, no one knows what causes this hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to take place.
There are several signs and symptoms that you may have with allergic vasculitis. Some of these are:
Open sores with dead tissue (necrotic ulcers)
Skin lesions that are usually found on your buttocks, trunk or legs
Hives (urticaria) that may remain for more than a day
Blisters on your skin
The appearance of red or purple discolorations on your skin.
You or a loved one may be suffering with allergic vasculitis. This disease and/or complications resulting from or other conditions along with it may be the reason for you or your loved ones disability. It may be why you need financial help.
Where will the financial assistance that you need come from? Who can and will help you?
Have you or your loved one thought about applying for the financial assistance that you need from the Social Security Administration by applying for Social Security disability benefits or disability benefits because of the disability caused by allergic vasculitis and/or complications resulting from or other conditions along with this disease? Have you or your loved one already taken this step and been denied by the Social Security Administration?
If you or your loved one has decided to appeal the denial by the Social Security Administration, you need to remember this. People who are represented by a disability attorney like the one you will find at disabilitycasereview.com are approved more often than people who do not have a disability lawyer.
