bad back

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 10/28/2020 - 15:13

I am considering applying for disability due to severe back issues that have hampered me for 20 plus years. Within the last two years the condition has worsened and is now affecting my ability to stand, walk, sit and sleep. I now find myself relying more and more on a cane to assist with some mobility. I have not worked for the last two years and fear that any job I am able to acquire will be severely impacted by my back condition.

Are you considered disabled if decent correction is in place

i have a fairly serious cleft palate that was closed up very early after birth. Nowadays, techniques are available for surgical repair in the palate to restore speech. I wear a speech appliance into my throat which works well. I sound different, but am easily understood and my disability has become an advantage in some ways. I do presentations and webinars and have no issues (as long as my appliance doesn't break).

Respiratory disorder due to prolonged chemical exposure

I work as a labor in a small scale manufacturing industry in Canada engaged in detergent production. Due to the long exposure of dust and raw materials of detergents, have caused problems in my respiratory system in the form of asthma and irritation to the eyes, causing mild blindness. I am temporarily totally disabled, and after the consultation, my doctor found out that my condition is worsening. I keep on having an asthma attack that lasts for over a day or two, and it requires intensive care resulting in increased medical expenses which is more than I can bear.

I have a Chiari Malformation I, which until the last few years didn't really affect me. But about 6 years ago it started getting worse. Now it affects everything - my heart, my breathing, my sleeping, my eyesight, headaches, ears constantly ringing.

degenerative disc disease and arthritis

Diagnosed 2 years ago at 37 after an MRI. I lost my job after missing work due to paid and mobility. I was hired back 6 months later after telling my employers that my back no longer hurt so I could support my family. I live in intense pain though and I'm scared for my future. Can i get SSD if my only medical records of this are from the initial Dr. and MRI imaging center I got the diagnosis from.

Heart Condition and Kidney Disease

I've gone thru two separate coronary bypasses(quad and double). Now I have been diagnosed with stage 3 kidney failure and anemia. I am 60 years old and still currently working for the Fed Gov. I take meds for BP, cholesterol, prostate and anxiety. For the most part, I have my good days and bad days. In someone's opinion, would the combination of these conditions qualify for disability?
