Other Diseases

There are a variety of additional diseases that may qualify you to receive Social Security Disability Insurance. For instance, fibromyalgia, digestive problems, and heart disorders can have disabling effects on the body, making work impossible.

If you or someone you love is struggling with one of these conditions, talk to an SSD attorney today to find out if your disease might qualify you to receive benefits. If you have a condition that is not on the Social Security Administration’s list of disabilities, your attorney can help you provide a solid argument as to why it should be on the list.


Fibromyalgia is a mysterious condition with no clearly identifiable cause in which the patient suffers chronic pain in the tendons, muscles, joints, and other tissues.

Fibromyalgia patients experience a wide variety of health problems, such as aches and pains, stiffness, fatigue, depression, sleep problems, headaches, palpitations, numbness/tingling, memory problems, and anxiety.

Digestive Problems

The category of digestive problems refers to a long list of disorders affecting the gastrointestinal tract, including the gallbladder, pancreas, and liver. Examples of digestive disorders include reflux, celiac disease, hepatitis, and irritable bowel syndrome. Patients diagnosed with a digestive problem may experience a whole host of health effects, including constipation, bloating, diarrhea, stomach cramping, and stomach pain.

Heart Problems

Heart conditions like cardiomyopathy, arrhythmias, tumors, endocarditis, and mitral valve prolapse can cause severe disability and may prove life threatening. Patients may experience extreme weakness, shortness of breath, palpitations, poor circulation, and many other negative effects that prevent them from living a normal life.
