Question: Can I get Social Security disability for interstitial cystitis?

Answer: It is certainly possible to get Social Security disability benefits for interstitial cystitis. A victory cannot be guaranteed but people are certainly approved for Social Security disability benefits for this painful, unpleasant condition. A lot depends upon the severity of the disease. There are some people who respond to medications and are able to work despite their interstitial cystitis. There are others who do not get enough relief from medications and are unable to work. Social Security has adopted a ruling dealing with interstitial cystitis cases although if you read it closely you will find it amazingly vague. It seems to promise a lot more than it delivers.

If you have been diagnosed with interstitial cystitis, you had probably never even heard of the disease until you were diagnosed, so you may feel very alone but there are others in the same boat with you. We know about the pain, urinary frequency and urgency associated with this disease. We know that this may not sound disabling to those who don’t understand the disease but that it really can be terribly disabling. We help people with interstitial cystitis.
