Hemophilia and Social Security Disability Benefits
Hemophilia is a blood disorder characterized by the clotting difficulty. In the blood, there are coagulating factors that cause the blood to react quickly and clot where there is an injury present. With hemophilia, some of these factors are missing, making it easier for an individual to bleed or keep bleeding once there is already a cut. The only prevalent symptom is excessive bleeding, externally and internally in severe cases.
The constant loss of blood can make individuals weak, not allowing them to perform very many tasks; individuals can risk their safety and the safety of others if they choose to operate under these conditions.

Most individuals suffer from severe fatigue due to the excessive loss of blood, and that can make work exceedingly difficult. Without a sufficient amount of blood in their system to operate, they are in danger of fainting; depending on the situation in which that occurs, it could be fatal.
