What Is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple Sclerosis affects the central nervous system of a body, causing neurological problems that affect the brain, optic nerves, and spinal cord. MS is a chronic disease, meaning it lasts over time, and it is also progressive, meaning it gets worse with time, resulting in loss of functions entirely.
What Are the Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis?
Because Multiple Sclerosis affects the nervous system, symptoms of the disease can affect multiple parts of the body, resulting in:
- Tremors and weakness in the limbs
- Loss of balance
- Difficulty walking
- Loss of vision or difficulty seeing
- Hearing loss
- Slurred speech
- Depression and fatigue
When these symptoms progress over time, they can impair a person’s ability to work and even function in general. When your Multiple Sclerosis keeps you from working and supporting yourself or your family, contact Horn & Kelley, PC Attorneys at Law.
How Do I Qualify for Benefits?
To receive Social Security Disability benefits for Multiple Sclerosis, you have to meet one of two criteria: the complete inability to use at least two extremities, or “marked” physical problems with a limitation in thinking, concentrating, or participating in social interactions. Social Security will also consider your other impairments in conjunction with your MS.
