If you suffer from MS you certainly may be eligible for Social Security Disability.

With symptoms such as numbness and weakness in your limbs, tingling and pain, blurred vision, tremors, unsteady gait, fatigue or dizziness you will be limited in your activities.

The key will be whether Social Security thinks your symptoms keep you from working on a full time basis.

For example, unsteady gait and dizziness may keep you from standing or walking most of the day but you may be able to work a sit down job. If you also have tremors of the arms and hands it may keep you from using them. This will most likely prevent you from doing any job.

Questions about MS or other limitations and how Social Security Disability looks at them? Please feel free to call me Illinois Attorney Dirk May at 309-827-4371.
