High blood pressure can increase your risk of developing heart disease or kidney disease. It’s estimated that 1 if every 4 American adults have high blood pressure and it’s especially dangerous because it often has no warning signs or symptoms.
What causes high blood pressure?
The causes of high blood pressure can include the narrowing of arteries, a greater than normal volume of blood or your heart beating faster or more forcefully than it should. This will cause increased pressure against your artery walls.
Your rights to Social Security Disability benefits and high blood pressure
High blood pressure per se, will not entitle you to Social Security disability benefits. However, if you’ve developed heart disease, kidney disease or have even had a stroke as a result of your high blood pressure, these conditions and the resulting disabilities can qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.
What should I do if my doctor has told me to stop working as a result of blood pressure and its complications?
You should immediately apply for Social Security Disability benefits and if you claim is denied, contact High Blood Pressure Social Security Disability Lawyer Nancy Cavey who can help file a Request for Reconsideration or a Request for Hearing so you get the Social Security Disability benefits you deserve.
