Can migraines qualify an applicant for SSD benefits?

What may seem like an ordinary headache to many and no cause for concern can often escalate into pain so severe that a sufferer is unable to move, much less work. Migraines are much worse than severe headaches. They often cause nausea, light and noise sensitivity, imbalance and fatigue. Although the 18 percent of people across the country who suffer from migraines may only get an attack once or twice a week, the symptoms can plague them on a daily basis. Research has found that 14 million Americans are affected by chronic fatigue and debilitating pain because of migraines on a daily basis. 90 percent of those who suffer from migraines are unable to work or move for hours, or even days, after they have had a migraine attack.

Submitting a Social Security Disability application is not the end of the road for many California residents-less than half of all first time SSD applications are accepted in the first attempt. A denial of SSD claims may seem disheartening but it doesn't have to be, because the Social Security Administration has a comprehensive appeals process that can be utilized to ensure the decision reached is the correct one.
