Peripheral Neuropathy and Disability
As many as 20 million Americans have been diagnosed with the nerve disorder known as peripheral neuropathy. For some, this disorder has minor effects on their day to day life, while others experience more debilitating effects which over time significantly disrupt their ability to take care of daily obligations. If you or someone you know has peripheral neuropathy that is causing them to experience problems maintaining a living wage, it may be appropriate to apply for long term Social Security Disability benefits.
However, this process can be difficult and confusing and unfortunately, many are turned away for the benefits they need.

Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy
In individuals with peripheral neuropathy, nerves have been damaged and can no longer carry messages to the brain from certain parts of the body. This can have effects on specific areas or the whole body. Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include:
- Muscle weakness
- Problems with organ function
- Bladder dysfunction
- Pain and numbness
- Loss of muscle control
- Sexual dysfunction
The symptoms associated with peripheral neuropathy can be painful as well as disruptive. If you are experiencing an inability to manage your symptoms and maintain work-related obligations, Social Security Disability benefits may be a necessary step to take.
