Huntington’s Disease — What Is It And How Can It Affect You?

Huntington’s disease is a genetic inheritance disease of the brain that results in the degeneration of the brain’s neurons. This disease causes uncontrolled movements, mood swings and the loss of cognitive abilities. There is currently no cure for Huntington’s disease, but medications can control the emotional and physical symptoms of this disease.

Like people suffering from any other disabling disease, people suffering from Huntington’s disease must put forth objective medical evidence of the severity of their medical condition and the effects on their ability to work. The problem of obtaining evidence related to Huntington’s disease is that many of the symptoms are subtle and difficult to document.

The three main symptoms prevalent among people suffering from Huntington’s disease are:

  • Movement — People cannot function at work because they drop things or lose their balance easily.
  • Cognitive — People have a difficult time in concentrating, following directions and understanding new processes or responsibilities.
  • Psychiatric — Their mood swings make it nearly impossible to work with others at work.

Documenting Your Condition — The Key To A Successful Claim

The key to any successful Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim is obtaining sufficient evidence. The Social Security Administration (SSA) will not provide you with benefits until you provide objective medical evidence documenting the severity of your injuries from a credible medical professional.
