Peripheral Neuropathy And Other Nerve Disorders

Peripheral nerves are those not contained in the brain or spinal cord. Peripheral neuropathy involves damage to these nerves and disrupts communication with the brain and the rest of the body. It can be caused by injury, systemic diseases (such as kidney disease or hormone imbalances, alcoholism, blood diseases or connective tissue disorders).

It is important to know that many individuals who suffer from peripheral neuropathy and a range of other nerve disorders may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. At The Law Offices of Sheryl Gandel Mazur in New Jersey, we have over 30 years of experience with the SSD system and processes. We understand what it takes to get you the benefits you need.

Disability Benefits For Nerve Disorders

Disorders involving peripheral nerves include:

Treatment mainly involves reducing pain from symptoms such as numbness, burning or tingling, muscle weakness, sensitivity to touch. In the most severe cases, patients may experience difficulty breathing and may have muscle wasting, paralysis and organ failure. Treatment depends on the underlying cause.

When applying for Social Security Disability benefits, the Social Security Administration will review all aspects of your individual situation. This includes examining medical documentation on how your peripheral neuropathy and other nerve disorders affect your ability to move, use your limbs and limit day-to-day activities.
