Ischemic Heart Disease
Winning Social Security Disability for Ischemic Heart Disease
Any type of heart disease is a serious condition. One heart condition that is considered severe is ischemic heart disease (IHD). If you have been diagnosed with ischemic heart disease and it’s severe enough that it’s expected to keep you from working for one full year, you may qualify for Social Security Disability. If approved, the benefits can be used to help you ease your financial burden while you can’t work.
But to win disability benefits, you must have medical evidence proving your ischemic heart disease. The Social Security Administration requires documented medical evidence and work history no matter your medical condition.
If you need help proving how your IHD will prevent you from working for at least 12 months to the SSA, give the Chicago disability attorneys at Nash Disability Law a call. Winning disability benefits is never easy, so let us help you put together a clear case and prove to the SSA that your IHD qualifies you for benefits.
Ischemic Heart Disease and Its Symptoms
IHD affects millions of Americans each year. The main condition is that your heart is unable to receive enough oxygen and blood for your body to function normally.
Causes for IHD vary – some cases are due to genetics and some are cause by lifestyle habits such as smoking. Your symptoms may vary depending on your overall health, but some of the common related medical conditions include:
- Chest Pain
- Acute Heart Damage
- High Blood Pressure
- High Cholesterol
- Heart Failure
