According to an article in the Journal of Child Neurology, cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS”) is a gastrointestinal disorder that is “characterized by severe discrete episodes of nausea, vomiting, and lethargy.” CVS is a fairly common, disabling, predominately childhood condition that has increasingly been seen in adults in recent years.
I represent a 49 year old former truck driver with CVS whose Social Security Disability (“SSD”) application was approved today five months after it was filed. The claimant had been treating with a gastroenterologist for this chronic condition since 2012. The claimant was missing about three days a month due to the CVS, which most vocational experts would say makes a person unable to sustain employment. However, even if CVS does not require a person to miss an entire day, it renders a person off task too often to be able to perform full time work on a sustained basis.Previous Next
