Raynaud's Disease Disability Claims
Our Disability Insurance Attorneys Help Clients Nationwide
In the United States, about 5% of the population has Raynaud’s disease. While primary Raynaud’s disease may be more of a bother than a serious illness, secondary Raynaud’s can present more of a challenge. Secondary Raynaud’s disease frequently appears with conditions like Lupus.
If you have a precise occupation, like performing surgery, even primary Raynaud’s can be disabling. Severe secondary Raynaud’s can lead to serious complications, like skin sores or gangrene (the death or decay of body tissues).
When a medical condition like Raynaud’s prevents you from working, Dabdoub Law Firm can help you recover disability benefits from your insurance company – as long as you have a policy through your employer or an individual plan.
Don’t try to work through Raynaud’s disease. Instead, call us at (800) 969-0488 and schedule a free consultation today.
What Is Raynaud’s Disease?
According to the U.S. government’s MedlinePlus:
“Raynaud's disease is a rare disorder of the blood vessels, usually in the fingers and toes.”
If you have Raynaud’s, your blood vessels will narrow when you are cold or feeling stressed. Because your blood cannot get to your extremities (usually your fingers and toes), they will turn white and blue. When blood returns, you will feel a tingling or throbbing sensation, and your skin will turn red. If you do not get blood into your arteries quickly enough, you could experience sores or tissue death.
People who live in cold climates suffer Raynaud’s attacks more frequently, but even something as simple as taking an item out of the freezer can cause an attack. Attacks can last for seconds or hours and occur daily or weekly.
From typing to manual labor, experiencing a Raynaud’s attack can make it difficult to fulfill the duties of your occupation. Secondary and severe Raynaud’s may require you to take time off work and pursue aggressive treatment.
