Q
What are the symptoms of aplastic anemia that may qualify me for disability benefits?

A

When the body fails to produce sufficient red blood cells, this may be caused by a serious condition known as aplastic anemia. The condition can result in dangerous bleeding that is difficult to control. Victims may need extensive treatment and may also be unable to work as a result. People suffering from this blood condition may be entitled to disability benefits. Aplastic anemia is listed as a covered condition in the Social Security Administration’s Blue Book, which contains a list of conditions that are commonly approved for benefits.

9 Symptoms of Aplastic Anemia

In order to obtain disability benefits for this condition, it is crucial to recognize the signs and symptoms. The following are nine common symptoms of aplastic anemia:

  1. Shortness of breath, especially after physical exertion
  2. Irregular, rapid heartbeat
  3. Paleness of the skin
  4. Unexplained bruising
  5. Headaches
  6. Rashes
  7. Dizziness
  8. Bleeding gums
  9. Frequent nose bleeds

People suffering from aplastic anemia may need to undergo frequent blood transfusions or stem cell transplants. As a result, it may be difficult or impossible to earn a living. In addition to dealing with the difficulties of aplastic anemia, sufferers may also face significant stress due to the financial struggle that may result.

Fortunately, social security disability benefits can provide the financial assistance victims need. Since these benefits are so important, maximizing your chances for obtaining the benefits you deserve is crucial. Obtaining assistance from an experienced attorney can greatly improve the likelihood for success during this process. We encourage you to contact us today for a free consultation at 888-904-6847.
