Disability Benefits for Multiple Sclerosis
Do you suffer from Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the nervous system which affects the spinal cord and brain. Multiple Sclerosis interferes with messages between your brain and the rest of your body. When this happens, you may experience symptoms which include visual disturbances, loss of balance, limb weakness, muscle weakness, tingling, fatigue, temperature sensitivity, and tremors. In some cases, you may experience slurred speech, seizures, cognitive difficulties, lack of coordination, breathing problems, or even paralysis.
Social Security looks at how MS affects your maximum physical ability to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security is required to consider the nature and extent of your MS, and how this condition restricts your ability to sit, stand, walk, lift, carry, push, and pull, as well as your ability to perform postural or manipulative activities (i.e. bending, twisting, stooping, reaching, fingering, or feeling). Social Security will also assess any further limitations that your MS might cause, such as a need for environmental restrictions, unscheduled breaks, or excessive absences due to symptoms or treatments.
