Bladder Pain Syndrome and Receiving Social Security Disability
The organ that collects urine that has been excreted by your kidneys before disposal by urination is your urinary bladder. Your urinary bladder is a hollow muscular elastic (distensible) organ that is situated on your pelvic floor. Urine comes into your urinary bladder through your ureters and goes out through your urethra.
Bladder pain syndrome is a chronic condition that is evidenced by discomforting bladder pressure, bladder pain and occasionally pain in your pelvis. This pain can range anywhere from mild burning or discomfort to severe pain.
Bladder pain syndrome is a condition that can affect anyone. Over 4 million people in the United States have this syndrome.
Bladder pain syndrome affects women more than it does men. Somewhere between 3 and 8 million women may have this syndrome. This represents between 3 and 6% of the female population of the United States. About 1.5 million men may have this syndrome. This number for men may be lower than the actual rate because bladder pain syndrome may be mistaken for other medical problems like chronic pelvic pain syndrome/chronic prostatitis.
The specific cause of bladder pain syndrome is not known. Several things have been suggested but not proven to play a role in the occurrence of this syndrome. Some of these are:

You or a loved one may be afflicted with bladder pain syndrome. Bladder pain syndrome and/or complications that have resulted from it or other disorders that you have along with this syndrome may have caused you or your loved ones disability and not being able to work.
If this is the case, you may need assistance. You may need financial help.
You or your loved one may have decided to apply 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 that has developed from bladder pain syndrome and/or complications that have been caused by it or other disorders that you have along with this syndrome. You may have already tried this option, and your claim was turned down by the Social Security Administration.
