Indianapolis Indiana Social Security Lawyer Scott Lewis Discusses Panic Attacks

Individuals suffering from panic attacks may find it difficult if not impossible to hold down steady full time employment.  Indianapolis disability attorney Scott Lewis has represented many individuals with this disabling condition and understands the impact it can have on even simple activities of daily living.  Many individuals suffering from panic attacks may experience an intense sudden fear that may bring with it physical reactions.  The sometimes unpredictable nature of panic attacks can create an environment where some individuals are afraid to leave their homes.

The symptoms of panic attacks may vary among individuals, but some common symptoms may include:

  • Nausea
  • Shortness of breath
  • Racing heart
  • Dizziness
  • Chest pains
  • Weakness

The Social Security Administration does recognize panic attacks in its listing for Anxiety related disorders.  If an individual does not precisely meet this listing there may be other ways to win your Social Security disability claim.  Individuals should also be aware of the fact the Social Security Administration will consider all of your disabling conditions in combination to determine if you are unable to work and are eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
