Lupus and Your Social Security Disability Claim
Over 1.5 million Americans suffer from Lupus, which is a complex autoimmune disease. The body’s own defense system, the immune system, plots an aggressive attack on healthy tissues and organs including joints, heart, lungs, kidneys, skin and blood. This causes inflammation, pain, and a feeling that you have the flu all the time.
Lupus symptoms can be flared by simple things such as being exposed to sunlight, smoking, hormonal changes or even stress. If you suffer from fatigue or joint pain, you might be suffering from Lupus and be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. The Law Offices of Nancy L. Cavey specializes in representing Social Security Disability applicants who suffer from Lupus.
