Is Sarcoidosis preventing you from working?
Seek Sarcoidosis Disability benefits.
Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that can strike any organ in the body, but it mainly targets the lungs, skin and lymph nodes. It causes small patches of red, swollen tissue, called granulomas, to cluster together in an organ, interfering with how the organ functions.
Many people with sarcoidosis don’t experience any symptoms, while others may suffer flu-like feelings, poor lung function, shortness of breath, skin sores, vision problems, joint pain or fatigue. If symptoms last more than two years despite treatment, sarcoidosis is considered chronic and may impact your ability to work and your quality of life.
That’s when you know it’s time to seek Social Security Disability benefits, which provide monthly payments, medical coverage and, quite possibly, a lump sum of back pay.
