How to Know When Your Arthritis Develops into a Disability

Whether you have rheumatoid arthritis (which targets your joint lining and damages your bones) or osteoarthritis (which happens as the cartilage in your joints wears down over time), the pain and limitations they cause can become debilitating. Though they may start as discomfort, they can develop into a full-blown disability after time, leaving you immobile and unable to work, care for yourself, or perform normal activities of daily living.

If this sounds like you, you could probably use a helping hand. Call (877) 959-9093 to see if home care is the right fit for you.

Signs Your Arthritis Has Become a Disability

It can be difficult to identify the point where an inconvenient limitation becomes a disability, but your health, well-being, and ability to function independently require you to keep your eyes open. Your arthritis may qualify as a disability if any of the following are true:

  • Arthritis-related pain and physical limitations get in the way of your work or interfere with your ability to make a living for yourself.
  • Your arthritis and its related consequences are causing you to rack up large medical expenses and treatment costs.
  • You have difficulty grasping, picking up, or using household objects.
  • You are in pain when transferring, standing up, sitting down, showering, dressing, or getting in and out of bed.
  • You are becoming more and more immobile as your arthritis develops, to the point where you need additional help with transportation, cooking, and other essential tasks.
