Can I get Social Security disability for angiitis? You are probably asking this question because you have angiitis, and it and/or other conditions that you have along with this disease have caused you to be disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.
Angiitis is a general medical term that is used to refer to a group of uncommon diseases that are marked by inflammation of your blood vessels. Damage to and inflammation in the walls of various blood vessels in your body are what characterizes angiitis.
When taken together, these uncommon diseases are referred to as vasculitides. What distinguishes each one of these diseases in this group are:Laboratory test abnormalitiesCertain patterns of particular organ involvementDistribution of blood vessels affected.
There are several different kinds of angiitis. Only particular organs are affected by some of these types of angiitis. For example, there are forms of angiitis that only involve your brain, skin, eye or particular internal organs.
However, there are also forms of angiitis that may affect several of your organ systems at the same time. Some of these types of angiitis are extremely severe as they involve some of your vital organs. Some of the other kinds of angiitis that affect multiple organ systems are mild and may be resolved without the need for treatment.
The cause of angiitis is unknown in most cases. However, a small number of cases are caused by ongoing or recent infections that are similar to those that are brought on by certain viruses.
There are occasions in which an infection may result in an abnormal response by your immune system. Angiitis can occur after your infection has gone away when this happens.
You may have angiitis in conjunction with other diseases that are related to your immune system. For instance, angiitis may be a complication of rheumatoid arthritis, which is looked at as an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are diseases in which your immune system, for some unknown reason, attacks the cells and tissues of your own body.
Any organ system
Because any organ or organ system of your body may be affected by angiitis, there are several different signs and systems that you may experience with the disease. This is also due to the fact that there are so many different types of angiitis. Possible signs and symptoms are:A rashItchy, red, burning eyesHeadachesFeverLoss of energyFatigueChronic middle ear infectionsLoss of appetiteUnintentional weight lossUlcers (sores) in your mouthGeneral aches and painsCoughing up bloodLoss of sensationAbnormal sensationShortness of breathWeakness, tingling and numbness in different parts of your bodyDifficulty with thinking clearlyProgressive kidney failureStrokeHeart attack.
