Birmingham Social Security Disability Lawyer PML

If you live in Birmingham Alabama, or anywhere in Jefferson County Alabama*, and you have been diagnosed as suffering from PML (progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy), you have probably been suffering from the disease for some time without knowing what was wrong, and you have probably already concluded that you just can't work any longer, and you are most likely correct.

Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (commonly known as PML) is a rare, and often fatal, condition which causes permanent damage to the material (myelin) that covers and protects nerves in the brain. Anyone who suffers from leukemia, lymphoma, AIDS, and certain medications used to treat multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and related condition have a greater risk of contracting the disease.

Side effects of PML include headaches, loss of coordination, impairments with speech, memory loss, vision loss and weakness of one's legs and arms. For people suffering with AIDS, treatment which strengthens the immune system can lead to some recovery from the symptoms.

Given the severity of the effects of PML, the Social Security Administration has listed PML under their Compassionate Allowances provisions, which should lead to a quick finding of disability.

Being diagnosed as suffering from PML is devastating enough; you don't have to deal with the Social Security Administration alone. If you live in Birmingham or in Jefferson County Alabama, have progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy and are having trouble being awarded Social Security Disability benefits, don't give up.
