Severe POTS Can Prevent You From Working

People with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) often feel dizzy and commonly faint upon standing from a seated position. POTS symptoms can cause an individual to face various difficulties in their day-to-day lives. If you are suffering from this ailment, you should consider filing a claim for disability benefits.

POTS is not listed in the Blue Book, but you may qualify for benefits.

Even though it is not mentioned specifically in the Blue Book, you may still be eligible for POTS disability benefits. All you need to do is submit comprehensive paperwork and evidence that demonstrates how your condition hinders your ability to perform daily tasks or earn a living. 

As part of the process, applicants are required to submit all the necessary paperwork and evidence along with the application. The Social Security Administration (SSA) can then consider and evaluate the applicant’s condition based on their residual functional capacity (RFC). The SSA will determine the extent to which the applicant’s condition limits their ability to work or whether they have any transferable skills. 

Symptoms of POTS

Here are some of the common symptoms that individuals who suffer from POTS may experience:

  • Chest pain
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chronic fatigue or lethargy
  • Difficulty in sleeping
  • Tremors or shaking
  • Heart palpitations

Dealing with POTS symptoms can be difficult.

One of the most important reasons why you should consider applying for Social Security benefits is that the symptoms relating to POTS can be challenging to deal with and difficult to anticipate.

This disorder can make it impossible for you to work and function properly, causing you to face difficulties relating to daily tasks and earning a living. Therefore, you should consider filing a claim for benefits if you have been diagnosed with this illness. 

To get approval for your disability claim, you will need to have all medical evidence and proof demonstrating that your condition is severe. Be sure to seek treatment from a licensed medical professional. 

In addition to your medical condition, the SSA may also consider other nonmedical aspects to determine whether you are eligible for benefits. For example, they may take your education, employment history, and skills into consideration to evaluate your RFC. Get in touch with a Social Security disability attorney to begin the application process and proceed with your claim.

Strong legal representation can make a world of difference.

For most people, applying for benefits can be a confusing and complicated process. It can also be very disheartening for claimants who have been previously denied. In addition, if an individual is unable to work and was formerly the household breadwinner, the entire family may be affected.

We understand the ins and outs of the entire process, from initial application to appeals. But when it comes to getting the Social Security disability benefits you deserve, we are ready to help.

We can provide assistance during the initial claim, reconsideration, hearing, and the appeals stage for any of the following benefits that the Social Security Administration provides:

  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI): If you are an adult with a physical or mental condition that is likely to prevent you from working at least 12 months, or that could be fatal, you may qualify for benefits. You may also qualify if you are over 65 years of age. There are also income restrictions imposed on recipients. Children with physical or mental conditions that result in functional limitations may receive supplemental income. In some situations, a person may be able to earn a significant amount of income from working and still be eligible for benefits if they meet certain requirements.
  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): As in the case of SSI, a person may be eligible for SSDI if they suffer from a physical or mental condition that is likely to prevent them from working for at least 12 months. This program does not offer benefits for people suffering from partial or short-term disabilities. The applicant also must have worked long enough (depending on when the person became disabled) under the Social Security system. If you are approved, you will receive monthly benefits based on your average lifetime earnings.
