Aneurysm and Social Security Disability Benefits
An aneurysm is the ballooning of an artery (or part of it) due to weakness in the wall of a blood vessel. Some of the most common places for the development of aneurysms are in the heart and brain. Due to the fact that aneurysms can occur in any part of the body, symptoms vary according to where they are located. Any type of aneurysm close to the surface of the skin will cause swelling and redness in the affected area. The aneurysm can rupture, causing severe pain, lightheadedness, and even low blood pressure; mortality rate is high when a rupture occurs.
Complications vary on where the aneurysm is present. If anywhere near joints, the pressure caused could create weakness and numbness in the limbs. Ruptures are dangerous and life-threatening.
Aneurysm and Social Security Disability Help
If the applicant’s impairment falls within any of the following categories set forth by Social Security’s Listing 4.10, then a strong claim may exist. The Listing is as follows;
4.10 Aneurysm of aorta or major branches, due to any cause (e.g., atherosclerosis, cystic medial necrosis, Marfan syndrome, trauma), demonstrated by appropriate medically acceptable imaging, with dissection not controlled by prescribed treatment (see 4.00H6).
The weakness involved with some types of aneurysms may fatigue an individual and make work difficult. Infections can also occur from tears/ruptures, causing sickness amongst sufferers, and thus debilitating them so that they cannot hold a normal occupation. Ruptures can instantaneously incapacitate a person and cause death if sever enough. Any aneurysms rupturing in the brain can cause strokes and permanent brain damage.
