Can I obtain disability benefits if I suffer from a pituitary gland disorder?

When an individual suffers from a pituitary gland disorder, he or she may suffer from symptoms that make it difficult or impossible to carry out daily tasks, including holding down a job. This can create significant financial stress. Fortunately, victims may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. To maximize your chance for obtaining the benefits that you deserve, it is important to get assistance from a knowledgeable legal professional.

8 Common Symptoms of Pituitary Gland Disorders

The pituitary gland is an organ that is located at the base of the brain. This gland produces and releases many of the hormones that travel through your system, including prolactin, growth hormone, and thyroid-stimulating hormone. When someone suffers from a pituitary gland disorder, these hormones are not produced or secreted properly. The following symptoms may occur as a result:

  1. Sexual dysfunction
  2. Hot flashes
  3. Irregular menstrual cycles
  4. Dry skin
  5. Hair loss
  6. Memory loss
  7. Fatigue
  8. Weakness

Depending on the cause of these symptoms, various types of treatment may be necessary. Individuals suffering from a pituitary gland disorder may suffer substantial financial distress created by the need for this treatment as well as the inability to work in order to earn a living and support themselves and their families.

To obtain disability benefits to help alleviate some of the financial burden created by a pituitary gland disorder, it is important to take swift action. We encourage you to contact us today for a free consultation at 888-904-6847.
