Can I get disability benefits for systemic vasculitis? Systemic Vasculitis is a type of vasculitis-which is an inflammation of your blood vessels-which causes changes in the walls of your blood vessels, including thickening, weakening, narrowing and scarring.
There are many types of vasculitis. Some forms last only a short time (acute) while others are long lasting (chronic). Vasculitis can be so severe that the tissues and organs supplied by the affected vessels don’t get enough blood. This shortage of blood can result in organ and tissue damage, even death.
The signs and symptoms of vasculitis vary depending on which blood vessels and, as a result, which organ systems are affected. However, general signs and symptoms that many people with vasculitis experience include: fever; fatigue; weight loss; muscle and joint pain, loss of appetite and numbness and weakness.
There is currently no cure for systemic vasculitis, and the Code of Federal Regulations lists several conditions and the required symptomology that must be present in order for someone to meet disability standards. The medical requirements for multiple systemic vasculitis is found at Listing 14.04. 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 Alabama, you are suffering from the effects of Systemic Vasculitis 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.
