Heart failure can lead to disability

Anything that interferes with the heart's functions can lead to a serious decline in health, or even death. When a person in Tennessee experiences heart failure, it may be a chronic condition, such as congestive heart failure, or it could be an acute condition. Therefore, it is important to keep an eye out for the symptoms of heart failure. The quicker one receives medical condition for heart failure, the better.

One symptom of heart failure is having a hard time breathing when doing something strenuous or lying down. Another symptom of heart failure is feeling tired and weak. Those with heart failure may also find that their abdomen, feet, ankles and legs have become swollen. A person with heart failure may also have either an irregular or rapid heartbeat. If a person has had a heart attack, they may also have pain in their chest.

When people experience heart failure, they may not be able to exercise as extensively as they once did. They may have a chronic cough or wheezing, combined with phlegm, the color of which may range from white to pink. They may experience sudden, severe instances of being unable to breathe properly, combined with coughing up foamy mucus. A person with heart failure may need to go to the bathroom more at nighttime. Another symptom of heart failure is not being very hungry or feeling like you might need to throw up. A person with heart failure may find it hard to concentrate and stay alert.

In the end, when people experience heart failure they may eventually get to a point where they are no longer able to carry out their everyday activities, including working. Having a chronic medical condition can be very expensive, so any other factors that affects one's finances, such as being unable to work, can be very burdensome. Our government recognizes this, and provides those who qualify with Social Security Disability benefits. However, applying for such benefits is a complicated process that often necessitates an appeal of an initial denial of benefits. Those seeking Social Security Disability Insurance benefits for heart failure may want to get more information about the application process.
