ISCHEMIC HEART DISEASE
Ischemic heart disease or coronary heart disease is a medical condition where the muscles of the heart are weakened due to not being able to receive enough blood. Usually, your doctor would recommend lifestyle changes, regular exercise, and proper diet.
Ischemic cardiomyopathy (IC) is the result of a heart attack or coronary artery disease. The medical condition of coronary heart disease is the arteries that carry blood to your heart muscle have become narrowed due to cholesterol particles accumulated on the walls of the arteries that supply blood to the heart. This will keep oxygenated blood in reaching some parts of your heart muscle, which will cause damage. Once you develop IC, the left ventricle of your heart becomes enlarged, weakened and dilated. Of course, this will affect the normal heart’s ability to function or pump blood which will likely lead to heart failure.
If blood flow becomes impaired due to coronary artery disease, you may experience extreme fatigue, difficulty in breathing, dizziness, fainting or lightheartedness, chest pain and chest pressure, irregular heart rate or palpitations, edema, cough, have a hard time falling asleep and weight gain among others. If you think you have the following symptom, it is strongly advised to seek medical attention.
If you think you are suffering from Ischemic Heart Disease you should seek medical assistance. You may also be entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits. The SSA considered Ischemic Heart Disease as a medical condition that would make you eligible for SSDI and SSI. Social Security Administration (SSA) maintains a “Listing of Medical Impairments” (known as the blue book) that automatically qualify you for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
