Will I be Able to Get Social Security Disability for Eisenmenger's Syndrome
Will I be able to get Social Security Disability for Eisenmengers syndrome. You are probably asking this question because you have this syndrome, and it and/or complications that have resulted from the syndrome have caused you to be disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.
Eisenmengers syndrome is really a combination of two conditions. The first condition is referred to as reversed blood flow. Reversed blood flow results from having a hole that is situated in the wall between the two chambers of your heart. This hole allows oxygenated blood to recirculate back into your right ventricle and into your lungs, instead of the blood traveling out of your left ventricle into the rest of your body.
Extra blood flow
The second condition is known as pulmonary hypertension. With the passage of time, pulmonary hypertension results from the extra blood flow to your lungs. This extra blood flow damages the vessels of your lungs, which results in high blood pressure. Pulmonary hypertension also reverses the flow of your blood. This causes deoxygenated blood to go to the rest of your body.
There are several different signs and symptoms that may be an indication of Eisenmengers syndrome. Some of these are:An iron deficiencyGallstonesA high red blood cell countCoughing up bloodArrhythmia or irregular heart rhythmsSwollen or clubbed finger tipsFainting that is known as syncopeGoutBleeding disordersKidney problemsStrokeHeart failureCyanosis, a blue tinge to your skin that results from a lack of oxygen.
The cause of Eisenmengers syndrome is the effects that result over time from the pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure) in your lungs. This pulmonary hypertension results from congenital heart defects.
Congenital refers to anything that you are born with. In this case, these are heart defects that you are born with. Congenital heart defects that may result in Eisenmengers syndrome include:Atrioventricular canal defect (AV canal)Ventricular septal defect (VSD)Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA)Atrial septal defect (ASD).
An adolescent or child who has any of the congenital heart defects just listed has a higher risk for getting Eisenmengers syndrome. This is especially true if these defects were not repaired or were repaired after the age of one.
Once again, you may be afflicted with Eisenmengers syndrome. This syndrome and/or complications that have resulted from it have caused you to be disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.
Have you applied for the financial assistance that you need by applying for Social Security Disability from the Social Security Administration? Were you denied?
If you are planning on reapplying or appealing your denial by the Social Security Administration, think carefully about this important fact that you may not be aware of. People who have a disability attorney fighting for them like the one at disabilitycasereview.com, are approved more often than people who do not have a disability attorney on their side.
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.
