Migraines Can Be Disabling

Migraines are extremely painful headaches. These types of headaches can cause significant pain for hours or days. Migraines may be caused by stress, changes in sleep patterns, or long exposures to light. Migraine symptoms include nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines may also cause throbbing head pain, pain that worsens with activity, and pain that interferes with daily activities.

Social Security looks at how migraines affect your maximum ability to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security may consider whether your migraines are caused by work-related stress. Social Security is required to consider the nature and extent of your migraines, and how this condition restricts your need for environmental restrictions, unscheduled breaks, or excessive absences due to symptoms or treatments.

Our attorneys help individuals suffering from migraines fight for disability benefits.
