Can I get disability benefits for IBD Huntsville Disability Lawyer

Can I get disability benefits for IBD Huntsville Disability Lawyer: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) involves chronic inflammation of all or part of your digestive tract. IBD primarily includes ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease and can be painful and debilitating, and sometimes leads to life-threatening complications.

Ulcerative colitis is a type of inflammatory bowel disease which causes long-lasting inflammation in part of your digestive tract. Symptoms usually develop over time, rather than suddenly. Ulcerative colitis usually affects only the innermost lining of your large intestine (colon) and rectum. It occurs only through continuous stretches of your colon.

Crohn's disease is also an inflammatory bowel disease which causes inflammation anywhere along the lining of your digestive tract, and often spreads deep into affected tissues. This can lead to abdominal pain, severe diarrhea and even malnutrition. The inflammation caused by Crohn's disease can involve different areas of the digestive tract in different people.

Collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis also are considered types of inflammatory bowel diseases.

The Social Security Administration lists Inflammatory Bowel Disease as a condition which can be disabling when the symptoms interferes with the person's ability to engage in sustained work activity. Listing 5.06 in the Code of Federal Regulations lays out in specifics the impairments which a sufferer has to have in order to qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits, however, if you do not "meet or equal" this listing, you may still be entitled to disability benefits if your condition, in conjunction with any other physical or mental impairment, prevents you from returning to work you have done in the past and other substantial work you might be qualified to perform given your age, education and acquired work skills.

If you or a loved one lives in or around Madison County, you are suffering from the effects of Inflammatory Bowel Disease and you believe you are disabled as the result and are entitled to Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, you do not have to take on the Social Security Administration alone.
