For those who experience migraines or consistent headaches, life can be extremely hard and simple tasks can become impossible. Those who have these troubles should know that migraines can be considered a disability qualifying condition by the Social Security Administration and benefits are attainable.
According to WebMD, those who suffer from chronic migraines suffer from ever-present pain throughout the day that affects the front, top and sides of the head. Pain comes and goes for prolonged periods of time and can affect vision and make someone very fatigued.
A person with migraines can be disabled at any age, old or young, and an inability to do the basic demands of work could be enough to show a judge that someone is disabled.
