Can I get Disability for Crohn’s Disease?
Crohn’s disease is an uncomfortable condition characterized by the inflammation of the digestive system’s lining. The disease can be chronic, affecting many digestive organs ranging from the mouth to the anus.
Left untreated, the inflammation can take its toll on the digestive system, by narrowing the colon and other digestive tracts. A result of both environmental and genetic factors, common symptoms of Crohn’s disease includes diarrhea, pain in the abdomen, and fatigue.
Crohn’s disease treatment can be intensive.In the most severe cases,surgery is necessary to remove the infected parts of the digestive system. It goes without saying that a physical disability like Crohn’s disease can heavily impact the quality of a person’s life and their comfort in performing even the most rudimentary, everyday activities.
