Can I Get Social Security Disability for Chondropathia Tuberosa
Can I get Social Security Disability for chondropathia tuberosa? If you are asking this question, it is most likely because you have this disorder, and it and/or complications resulting from it or other ailments along with it have caused you to be disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.
Arthritis is a disorder that literally means joint inflammation. Arthritis is where there is inflammation of a joint this is affected with and characterized by restriction of motion, changes in structure, swelling, pain and stiffness.
Chondropathia tuberosa is one of the more than 100 types of arthritis. Costochondritis and chondropathia tuberose are similar but not the same.
Costochondritis involves inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to your sternum (breastbone). It is marked by sharp, localized chest pain. In fact, you can usually duplicate the pain that is brought about by costochondritis by pushing on the cartilage at the front of your ribcage.
Chondropathia tuberosa, however, is evidenced by inflammation of what is known as the costochondral cartilages that are situated in the upper front part of your chest. With costochondritis, you do not have swelling; whereas with chondropathia tuberosa, you experience localized swelling.
As just stated, it is the localized swelling that marks the difference between chondropathia tuberosa and costochondritis, and it is this swelling that constitutes the primary sign or symptom of the ailment. This swelling may begin either gradually or suddenly, and the pain may radiate (move) to your shoulders and/or your arms.
This characteristic swelling is not the only sign or symptom you may experience with chondropathia tuberosa. Some of the other possible signs and symptoms are:Problems with breathingPain when you take a deep breathTrouble and difficulty sleepingPain and tendernessPain when you have to coughRedness and heatPain when you roll over in bedPain may be aggravated by bending over, exertion or sneezingPain may also be made worse by worry, fatigue, anxiety or changes in the weather.
The specific cause of chondropathia tuberosa is not known. It may be brought about by overexertion or an injury to your chest or breast. It may also be caused by a minor injury or a physical strain like coughing, vomiting or an impact to your chest.
You may have chondropathia tuberosa by itself. Or, it can result from more serious ailments, such as ulcerative colitis, Crohns disease, psoriatic arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis.
Again, chondropathia tuberosa and/or complications resulting from it or other debilitating conditions that you have in association with it may be the reason why you are disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance. You may have applied for Social Security Disability from the Social Security Administration and been denied.
If you plan on reapplying or appealing your denial, do not forget this simple fact. People who are represented by a disability attorney like the one at disabilitycasereview.com, are approved more often than people who do not have a disability attorney standing with them.
The wise thing to do is to contact the disability attorney at disabilitycasereview.com, and have your case evaluated at no cost or obligation to you.
