Receiving Social Security Disability for Angina Inversa
Can I receive Social Security disability for angina inversa? If you are asking this question, it is most likely because you are experiencing this pain, and the underlying condition that is responsible for your angina inversa has caused you to be disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.
Angina is usually used in reference to your heart and chest pain. However, angina can also be used to refer to pain in other parts of your body.
Abdominal angina is an example of this. It is used in reference to postprandial abdominal pain that occurs when there is not enough blood flow for mesenteric visceral needs.
Involves your heart
Angina pectoris is the term that is used in regard to chest pain that involves your heart. Angina inversa is a variant form of angina pectoris.
Angina inversa is chest pain that occurs when you are resting. In fact, it is chest pain that takes place in cycles while you are resting.
One important thing that you need to know is that angina inversa is not a disease or a disorder. It is a sign or symptom of an underlying condition that is causing it. Angina inversa may be the main sign or symptom of your underlying condition.
Not a disease
Having said that angina inversa is not itself a disease, there are some things about it that may be helpful to you in regard to the pain you experience. The pain:Usually happens at nightUsually lasts from 5 to 30 minutesCan be described as crushing, constricting, squeezing, tightness, pressureMay cause palpitations (irregular, skipped or rapid heartbeats)May be severeMay cause nauseaMay be located under your breast boneMay radiate to your arm, shoulder, jaw or neckMay cause lightheadedness May take place at the same time each day, which usually is between 12:00 midnight and 8:00 AMCan cause fainting or loss of consciousnessMay cause you to have trouble breathingMay be relieved with nitroglycerin.
Angina inversa is caused by a spasm in one of your coronary arteries that supplies your heart muscle with oxygen, nutrients and blood. A spasm is a sudden, temporary tightening or narrowing of a small area of your artery. When this happens, your heart does not receive enough blood. The pain of angina inversa results from this blockage of blood flow.
As mentioned at the beginning, angina inversa may be the main sign or symptom that you are experiencing of the underlying condition that is causing it. As a result, the underlying condition is what is causing you to be disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.
