Will I be Eligible for Social Security Disability with Dressler's Syndrome
Will I be eligible for Social Security Disability with Dresslers syndrome? This may be a question you are asking if you have this disorder, and it and/or complications resulting from the disorder or other debilitating conditions that you have in addition to it have caused you to be disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.
The word pericardium comes from two Greek words that mean around and heart. This is what your pericardium is. It is a double-walled sac that contains your heart and the roots of the large vessels that bring blood to and from your heart.
Your pericardium is made up of two layers. These are a serous layer and a fibrous layer. In between these two layers is a small quantity of lubricating fluid.
Your pericardium fixes your heart to the mediastinum, which is the central compartment of your thoracic cavity. The mediastinum contains your heart and its vessels.
If your pericardium becomes inflamed and irritated, there is more lubricating liquid. The result is that your heart is compressed, and the action of your heart is restrained. This irritation and inflammation of your pericardium is referred to as pericarditis.
Form of pericarditis
Dresslers syndrome is a form of pericarditis. Researchers think that Dresslers syndrome is a response by your immune system following harm to your heart tissue or pericardium. Things such as a heart attack, traumatic injury or surgery may cause this injury.
In fact, Dresslers syndrome may cause you to think that you are having another heart attack. The reason for this is that Dresslers syndrome may bring about shortness of breath, prolonged or recurrent fever and chest pain.
There are other signs and symptoms you may experience with Dresslers syndrome. These include:FatigueDry coughMalaise (general sick feeling)Pains when you take a breath (pleurisy)Accumulation of fluid around your heartTachycardia (rapid heart rate)Pain in your left shoulderAnxiety.
As stated above, researchers believe Dresslers syndrome may result from a response by your immune system to harm to your heart. Immune cells and antibodies are directed by your immune system to clean up and repair the damaged area.
Your immune system does this whenever you sustain any type of injury. The problem is that in this instance your immune system may bring about too much inflammation to your pericardium.
Again, you may be suffering with Dresslers syndrome. It and/or complications resulting from the disorder or other debilitating conditions that you have in addition to the disorder may have caused you to be disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.
