Disability Benefits and Inflammatory Arthritis

According to the CDC, 23% of all adults in the United States have arthritis. It is the leading cause of disability preventing Americans from working. Inflammatory arthritis is a group of diseases characterized by inflammatory of the joints and often other tissues (Arthritis Foundation). These include rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, systemic lupus, and others.

Somatic Symptom Disorder

A somatic symptom disorder (formerly known as "somatoform disorder") is a mental illness characterized by the manifestation of physical symptoms such as pain, weakness, pseudoseizures, sensory abnormalities, or gastrointestinal issues. These physical symptoms are neither feigned nor intentionally produced and cannot be fully explained by another medical condition, mental disorder, or drug effect. They may or may not be associated with another medical impairment, but the body's reaction to such distress is extreme and disproportionate.
