When filing a disability claim for an Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (“EDS”), it can be difficult to prove the disabling effect. The subjective nature of some of the symptoms, including pain and fatigue, makes it difficult to prove your disability. We have represented people suffering from Ehlers-Danlos and understand the severe impairments and associated conditions that come from it.
What is Ehlers-Danlos?
According to the Ehlers-Danlos Society, Ehlers-Danlos syndromes are a group of disorders that impact connective tissue—mainly the skin, joints, and blood vessel walls. The symptoms of EDS include:
- Pain and fatigue
- Flexible joints that dislocate easily
- Muscle pain and tension
- Nerve pain
- Hyper-flexible skin and fragile skin
- Easy bruising
People with EDS can also suffer from co-morbid conditions such as:
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Unusual heart rate and blood pressure
- Bowled and bladder dysfunction
- Anxiety and depression
- Mast cell activation
How We Help?
We have successfully represented EDS patients in obtaining long-term disability benefits. In doing so, we rely on doctors’ support, medical records, and sometimes outside testing to explain what the condition is and how it impacts the functioning of our clients.
