Many people who have been diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmia/tachycardia are also found to specifically have what is called Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome. This particular syndrome is one of several disorders that affect the heart and interfere with the necessary electrical impulses which control the function of the atria and the ventricles of the heart. Electrical signals are generated and often track along an abnormal pathway which can cause premature contractions. This particular disease causes a unique type of tachycardia known as atrioventricular reciprocating tachycardia.
Social Security disability applicants frequently have difficulties with arrhythmia/tachycardia and the symptoms resulting from same can form a valid basis for a disability claim.
Unfortunately people who apply for disability based on any type of cardiac arrhythmia seem to have a much more difficult time getting the claims approved than ones who have other types of cardiac problems such as reduced ejection fractions, congestive heart failure or a history of heart attacks. At our law office, Drummond Disability, we find that is often necessary to try to “educate” the Adjudicators or Administrative Law Judges as to the functional limitations imposed on people who suffer from Parkinson-White-Syndrome and related disorders. If you have a disability claim and would like assistance presenting your claim (whether based on cardiac related issues or other disabilities) we can be reached by calling our toll free number: 1-800-842-0426 or by visiting our website at www.Drummonddisability.com.
