Alabama Disability Attorney VESTAVIA Syringomyelia

Alabama Disability Attorney VESTAVIA HILLS: Syringomyelia is a rare disorder which causes a fluid filled cyst to form in your spinal cord. The cyst is called a syrinx, and unfortunately it progressively grows larger and longer, putting pressure on the spinal cord, which results in the spinal cord itself being damaged.

While some people who have syringomyelia may not experience severe symptoms, others may experience gradually worsening symptoms which may include: a loss of muscle mass, loss of muscle coordination and functioning; pain and weakness in the back, shoulders, arms or legs; chronic headaches, numbness, a decreased ability to feel painful stimuli and muscle spasms. In serious cases, the person may experience difficulty performing activities of daily living without assistance, and cannot perform work activities, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year to the continued satisfaction of an employer.

If you or a loved one lives in Vestavia Hills, AL (or anywhere in Jefferson County*), you are suffering from Syringomyelia and you believe you are disabled as the result and entitled to Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, you do not have to fight with the Social Security Administration by yourself.
