How to Qualify for Social Security Disability with RSD, or CRPS, in Indianapolis
The Social Security Administration says it evaluates cases of reflex sympathetic dystrophy or chronic regional pain syndrome by looking for these symptoms:
- Pain that’s worse than the original injury or event that caused the pain
- Involuntary movement
- Osteoporosis (bone loss)
- Skin conditions such as changes in color, texture, sweating and temperature, including goose bumps
- Abnormal hair and nail growth
For your disability claim, you’ll need to provide documentation of these conditions.
Your documentation could include medical records showing you’ve been receiving ongoing treatment for your pain, how you’ve responded to that treatment, and how long your case of RSD or CRPS has lasted or is likely to last.
The essential qualifications for disability benefits are that you cannot work at all—and your health problems will last at least a year, or for a lifetime.
