Seizures may be a frequent part of serious illness disabilities


Many Los Angeles residents deal with minor illnesses all the time, such as the flu, stomach bugs or even bad colds. But, while these illnesses may be inconvenient for a few days, there are some people who live with much more serious illnesses that can impact their entire way of life. Suffering from frequent seizures, for example, could be a disability that could prevent a person from being able to maintain employment.

Epilepsy is a health condition that can cause a person to suffer frequent seizures. The seizures that a person with epilepsy can suffer from can be completely unexpected and difficult to see coming. When people suffer a seizure, they can injure themselves by falling or striking an item during the convulsions. Or, the seizure could even cause additional health problems. Another unfortunately reality for those who suffer from epilepsy is that they may be more likely to die than others in the general population.

However, epilepsy is not the only health condition that can lead to seizures. Many people face other serious medical issues that can also lead to seizures. When a Los Angeles resident is applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits due to a medical condition that includes seizures, they will want to make that clear on their application.

People who suffer from serious health conditions may qualify for SSD benefits, if the condition can be classified as a disability. Anyone who believes that their health condition will prevent them from being able to work may want to get more information about whether they might qualify for SSD benefits for the illness.
