Can you get Social Security Disability for flatulence? If this is something that you want to know, it is probably because you have a serious problem with flatulence. In fact, flatulence may be one of the main signs or symptoms of a serious underlying medical condition that has caused you to be disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.
Flatulence is the medical term that refers to passing gas. Passing gas in public is looked at as one of the most embarrassing things that you can do. However, passing gas is a normal function of your body.
It will probably surprise you to find out that most people produce 1 to 3 pints of gas each day. Most women pass gas between 7 and 12 times a day. Most men pass gas between 14 and 25 times a day.
Flatulence is a condition in which you have an excessive amount of intestinal or stomach gas. This condition is evidenced by passing gas from your rectum, an uncomfortable feeling of being bloated or an increased amount of belching (burping). The gas that you pass from your rectum is referred to as flatus.
No laughing matter
Flatulence is very common, but it is not a laughing matter. Flatulence can become so severe that it is looked at as a disease. As mentioned at the beginning, flatulence may even be the main sign or symptom of a severe underlying ailment that is causing it.
When flatulence becomes severe and/or is the main sign or symptom of a serious underlying disorder, there are signs and symptoms which may be an indication of this. Some of these are:
An excessive amount of belching and bloating
A knotted sensation in your abdomen
Increased passage of gas
Unintentional weight loss
Sharp, jabbing pains or cramps
Flatulence is brought about by either endogenous or exogenous sources. Endogenous gases come from either incomplete digestion or as a by-product of digesting certain kinds of food. Exogenous sources refer to excessive amounts of air that you ingest through your mouth and nose. Exogenous gases are produced when there is an excessive amount of swallowing at times when you have excessive salivation or are swallowed while you are drinking or eating.
Again, you may have a serious problem with flatulence. Flatulence may be the primary sign or symptom of a severe underlying ailment that has caused you to be disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.
You may have 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 intending to reapply or appeal your denial, there is an important fact that you need to seriously consider. Claimants 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 best thing to do is to contact the disability attorney at disabilitycasereview.com, and have your case evaluated at no cost or obligation to you.
