New Therapeutic Treatment and Multiple Sclerosis Disability Information

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a potentially debilitating disease that causes inflammatory damage around the axons of the brain and spinal cord. This damage to the myelin sheath called the “demyelination” can cause loss of sensitivity, tingling, pins and needles, numbness, muscle weakness, spasm, difficulty moving with coordination, balance, speech and digestive problems.

For the last 20 years Beta Interferons have been prescribed for patients with multiple sclerosis. Unfortunately, a study at the University of British Columbia indicates that Beta Interferons may actually have no measurable impact on the progression of the disease. As a result, new therapeutic measures are being explored. Use of a MRI in monitoring patients and their response to treatment can help open the door to alternative forms of treatment according to researchers at the University of British Columbia.

If you have diagnosed with MS and your physician has advised that you can no longer work, and you have purchased long term disability insurance or are provided insurance through your employer, you should file for long term disability benefits. Unfortunately, long term disability carriers make it easy for those with MS to get the disability benefits that they deserve. If you have questions about the long term disability claim’s process or your claim for MS has been delayed or denied, you should contact Tampa Bay disability MS attorney Nancy Cavey who can help you get the long term disability benefits that you deserve no matter where you live in the Tampa Bay Area.
