Sjogren’s Syndrome

Sjogren’s Syndrome Disability Claims

Trust Our Experienced Disability Insurance Lawyers With Your Claim

Many people take their tears and saliva for granted, but for people with Sjogren’s syndrome, this is not the case. Sjogren’s syndrome is an autoimmune disorder that attacks the parts of your body that create moisture. In addition to attacking the glands that create tears and saliva, Sjogren’s syndrome can cause dryness in other body parts that need moisture, like your nose, throat, and skin. In severe cases, Sjogren’s can affect your nerves, joints, blood vessels, and digestive organs.

When the symptoms of Sjogren’s syndrome become overwhelming, you may not be able to meet the demands of your occupation. If you are covered by disability insurance through your workplace or a private policy, however, you should be able to claim short-term disability (STD) benefits, long-term disability (LTD) benefits, or both.

Nevertheless, you should keep in mind that insurance companies may not want to pay these benefits, especially if they do not understand your medical condition. Before you file a claim, you may want to speak to an experienced disability attorney.

Dabdoub Law Firm has been helping clients nationwide for more than 20 years. We handle claims for STD and LTD benefits, appeals of disability denials and terminations, and even disability lawsuits.

Symptoms and Complications of Sjogren’s Syndrome

The most obvious symptoms of Sjogren’s syndrome are dry mouth and dry eyes. These symptoms can make chewing and swallowing difficult and painful or cause you to feel like you have a piece of sand in your eye.

Sjogren’s syndrome is often linked to lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, and other symptoms of Sjogren’s may include:

  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Dry skin and rashes (especially on hands and feet)
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Dry cough that doesn’t go away
  • Chronic fatigue

These symptoms may get better, worse, or stay the same over time. Some people experience periods of good health followed by cycles of severe disease. Debilitating fatigue and joint pain often keep people with Sjogren’s syndrome from their careers.

Medical conditions like Sjogren’s syndrome can be cause for a short-term or long-term disability claim. Our disability attorneys can help you at any point in the claims process.
