Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable Bowel Syndrome Social Security Disability Claims
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a gastrointestinal disorder characterized by symptoms such as cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, and diarrhea. Nearly 20 percent of the U.S. adult population has experienced symptoms of IBS, making irritable bowel syndrome one of the most common disorders diagnosed by doctors. Some people can control their IBS symptoms with diet, medication, and stress management. For some people however, IBS can be disabling.
If you can’t work because of irritable bowel syndrome, depending on your circumstances it could be possible to get Social Security Disability benefits. Medical record documentation of doctors’ appointments, medications and treatment, and treating doctors’ opinions are critical to proving you are eligible for irritable bowel syndrome disability benefits.
Not everyone suffering from IBS qualifies for Social Security Disability. Irritable bowel syndrome symptoms can be hard to document, but at Binder & Binder®, we make sure your IBS diagnosis is clearly documented in records and statements from treating doctors that are sent to the Social Security Administration (SSA). Binder & Binder® is equipped to represent clients filing for irritable bowel syndrome disability insurance or SSD benefits throughout the country.
