Qualifying for Disability Benefits with Dysautonomia

Dysautonomia is a nervous system disorder that disrupts autonomic body processes. These are automatic functions like your blood pressure and heart rate. Having dysautonomia means these functions don’t work properly, causing disruptive symptoms. These symptoms are often manageable, but diagnosing and treating dysautonomia is sometimes difficult. To learn more about how the Social Security Administration (SSA) defines this disability, visit Section 5.00 of the Blue Book.

Does Dysautonomia Qualify for Disability?

While there is no specific Blue Book listing for dysautonomia, you may qualify under a different listing if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Significant difficulty standing, sitting, or walking for extended periods of time
  • Trouble lifting, pushing, grasping, or raising your arms above your head
  • Chronic pain that makes it difficult for you to focus or causes you to miss significant amounts of work

Additionally, if any of your symptoms make it dangerous for you to work, you may also qualify for benefits. For example, some of the specific dysautonomic disorders cause a significant risk of fainting, which would make working at many types of jobs very hazardous.
