Does Anxiety Qualify as a Condition For Social Security Disability

Mental disorders are often more difficult to overcome than anything physical that could come your way. When you’re in pain, you can often use your mind to calm yourself down and get through the situation. But when it’s your brain that is the problem—doing so can be impossible. Going to work and making it through the day is often not feasible for those with anxiety disorders. Social Security disability may help you.

About Anxiety Disorders

An anxiety disorder is typically defined as a disorder in your nervous system that affects your emotional state and can cause fearful and irrational emotions, or worries that do not have factual basis. The complete cause of the disorder is unknown, but it may be related to the brain’s neurotransmitters, the person’s environment, genetics, or life experiences.

Types of Anxiety Disorders

“Anxiety disorders” is a blanket term that covers a variety of conditions. For example, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized and social anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and panic disorder are all considered to be types of anxiety disorders.

Symptoms of Anxiety Disorders

Many people don’t realize they have anxiety disorders, until much later after they begin. They often know something is wrong, but don’t realize what it is. Symptoms of anxiety disorders include stomach aches, muscle tension, sweaty palms, diarrhea, breathing difficulties, headaches, feeling distracted, and feeling on edge.

If you believe you may have an anxiety disorder that prevents you from working, we encourage you to call your doctor and then call a lawyer. You may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability.
