In a healthy person, blood flows normally and unimpeded throughout the body. However, when certain disorders result in excessive or unstoppable bleeding, or the formation of blood clots as the blood flows through the body, there may be serious consequences for the patient.
Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder that can have serious consequences such as excessive, unstoppable bleeding. Hemophilia is a genetic condition that affects males more than females.
If your condition results in consequences that are the result of such bleeding, like pain in the joints, extreme and chronic fatigue, or organ failures, this may help you qualify for a disability claim. There are other bleeding disorders, including thrombocytopenia and Von Willebrand disease that may also qualify you for Social Security disability benefits.
