The autonomic nervous system (“ANS”) regulates virtually all of our body functions and systems, including blood pressure, pulse, heart rate, body temperature, breathing, sweating, digestion, swallowing, bowel function, sleep patterns, urination, and sexual response. An ANS disorder can affect all or part of the ANS, which obviously can cause seriously disabling problems. An ANS disorder can be caused by other medical conditions.
According to the CDC, “myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) is a disabling and complex illness.” Studies have found that ANS dysfunction symptoms were strongly associated with ME/CFS.
We were retained by a 35 year old former attorney from Great Neck after he was denied Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits based upon ME/CFS. We secured various sources of medical records and reports. SSD benefits were approved on reconsideration, without having to wait for a hearing, after we demonstrated how the claimant’s comorbid ANS disorder and ME/CFS precluded any type of full time activity.
Our claimant is overwhelmed with gratitude over the speed in which we were able to get him approved, and because he won’t have to suffer through a hearing. Even though he is an attorney, he realized that he needed to retain an attorney who specialized in disability, and that he shouldn’t be handling the claim himself. He found us on AVVO, and based on the reviews, decided to call us for a free phone consultation, and then retained us. You can call us for a free phone consultation if you plan on applying for disability. We have offices on Long Island in both Nassau and Suffolk counties.
