Sleep Apnea and the MS Patient’s Claim for Long Term Disability Benefits
If you suffer from MS and are having difficulty with your long term disability claim, Nancy Cavey, experienced long term disability MS attorney, suggests that part of the problem you might be having is your failure to fully explain all the problems that you have as a result of your MS. This can include difficulty walking, balance and coordination. However, obstructive sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder among people with MS.
Many people with MS also have bladder problems, which means that there are in and out of bed frequently. They may also have restless limp syndrome, or periodic limb movements with spasm and even pain that can prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep.
As a result, you may also have depression and anxiety.
Your sleep deprivation needs to be treated but also needs to be developed in your claim for long term disability benefits. If you need assistance in your MS disability claim, contact the MS disability experts at The Law Offices of Nancy L. Cavey.
