Asthma and Your Long Term Disability Claim
You’ve bought a long term disability policy to protect your occupation and if your physician has told you that you are unable to work as a result of asthma, you should apply for long term disability benefits.
Asthma is a chronic lung disease, characterized by wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness and coughing.
In asthma your airways, which are tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs become inflamed and swollen. As a result, they narrow which makes it more difficult for airflow to get your lungs.
Asthma can’t be cured. However, there are many medications that will help relax your bronchial spasm and reduce the anti-inflammatory like bronchodilators and corticosteroids. You should be working with your physician to find the best treatment for you.
