Social Security Disability Benefits and Diverticulitis

Do you suffer from diverticilutis and wonder if you might be entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits?

According to the Mayo Clinic, diverticulitis is a common intestinal disorder that forms small pouches on the outside of your colon. It is an inflammation that causes lower abdominal pain, nausea, fever, diarrhea, constipation, and an elevated white blood cell count. You can have such severe conditions as bowel blockage, bleeding, and abscesses.

Treatment for this condition can include antibiotics and surgical procedures.

Diverticulitis is a listed impairment under the Social Security Disability Listing of Impairments but, unfortunately, not all forms of diverticulitis meet a listed condition.

To be successful in applying for Social Security Disability benefits we need to establish that you have functional limitations as a result of your diverticulitis that prevent you from doing the lightest job you held in the last 15 years.

We also need to establish that you are unable to work in any other job based on your age, education and skills that you have learned as a result of your functional limitations.

At The Law Offices of Nancy L. Cavey we will fully develop the functional limitations that you have as a result of your pain, side effects of medications, fatigue which may impact your ability to work.

Call The Law Offices of Nancy L. Cavey for a consultation on your entitlement to Social Security Disability benefits as a result of diverticulitis at 727-894-3188.
