Also known as cardiovascular disease, “heart disease” means any condition that causes a narrowing or blocking of the blood vessels. Common symptoms include:
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain, pressure, tightness or discomfort
- Pain in the neck, jaw, throat, back or limbs
- Numbness, weakness or a cold sensation in the limbs
- Swollen feet or ankles
- Irregular heartbeat
In many cases, doctors can help you control your heart disease with medication and lifestyle changes. However, you may need to stop working, especially if you have a physically demanding or stressful job. The Disability Rights Law Center is here to help you obtain the SSDI benefits you deserve due to cardiovascular disease.
