Can I get Disability Benefits for Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome?

Can I get Disability Benefits for Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome?

Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) is a medical condition characterized by episodes of severe vomiting that have no apparent cause, often associated with nausea, gagging, loss of appetite, abdominal pain and headaches. Associated symptoms such as weight loss, dehydration, tooth decay and esophagitis are not uncommon.  These episodes can last for hours or even days, and often have a similar pattern (time of day, how long it lasts, intensity), although this is not always the case.

CVS is difficult to diagnose as vomiting is a symptom in a lot of medical disorders, and Cyclic Vomiting is generally diagnosed by ruling out other potential causes.  Although Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome can affect person of all ages-the condition often begins during childhood.

Given the unique nature of CVS, a medical history of treatment-preferably with a gastroenterologist-is needed in order for a diagnosis of the condition.

If you suffer from severe symptoms, maintain steady employment can be an issue.  Most jobs will not allow unscheduled breaks on a continual basis, and having to run to the bathroom to throw up and then take time to recover from the sickness and other symptoms on a regular basis would most likely not be allowed for long.

If you suffer from Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome and you have questions about your right to Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, don’t hesitate to contact and speak with one of the experienced Alabama Disability Attorneys at Powell and Denny today for a free consultation.  Virtual appointments through Zoom are available from wherever you live in Alabama+.
