What Are Neurological Disorders?
Neurological disorders are conditions that affect the nervous system, like the brain, spinal cord, and other nerves throughout the body. These disorders include:
- Multiple Sclerosis – a disease that causes damage to the spinal cord, making it difficult to walk normally and affecting other basic motor skills.
- Seizures/Seizure Disorders – uncontrollable muscle contractions and convulsions throughout the body, which are unpredictable and disruptive to everyday life.
- Neuromuscular Disorder/Myasthenia Gravis – severe muscle weakness, which makes it difficult for the sufferer to move their arms and legs.
- Peripheral and Non-Peripheral Neuropathy – a disease that causes extreme pain throughout the body, which can be caused by antibiotics.
- Stroke – a catastrophic event, which can cause full or partial paralysis and reduced cognitive ability.
- Traumatic Brain Injury – also known as a concussion, a TBI is a general term for damage done to the brain, which causes headaches and can affect motor skills.
These disorders can be incredibly painful and disruptive to normal day to day life. Nerve damage is often permanent and can cause psychological problems, or other physical problems such as infection, paralysis, and amputation.
Can Neurological Disorders Be Disabilities?
Some neurological disorders can be considered disabilities by the Social Security Administration (SSA) if they render you unable to work for at least a year. The SSA will analysis your medical records and the documented opinion of your doctor. It is vital to have a Social Security Disability lawyer look these papers over to ensure that they correctly show the scope of your disability.

How Do You Qualify For Disability Benefits?
You qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits by showing that you have a recognized disability that has kept you out of work, or will prevent you from working, for at least a year. Also, you have to have earned enough “work credit” with the Social Security Administration in order to qualify. People who don’t have enough work credit may be able to qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Read more.
