Bile reflux disease is a common disease occurring when bile flows upward from your small intestine into your stomach and esophagus. Acid reflux, the backflow of stomach acids into your esophagus, usually occurs along with bile reflux. Bile reflux and acid reflux together do not make a good combination. Both conditions can cause inflammation of the lining of your esophagus and increase your chances of getting esophageal cancer. It can also cause inflammation in your stomach and bring on pain.
Bile reflux disease will need to be managed through surgery or medications. It can be difficult to work through the pain and chronic symptoms of this persistent condition and as a result, you may spend a lot of time out of work. The good news is that when properly controlled, you may be able to return to normal work activities.
If the symptoms you experience do not get better through treatment or cause other medical problems, you may find you are unable to return to work, especially when you must perform physical job tasks every day. At some point, you may need to consider filing for Social Security benefits if you feel you are no longer able to work and you have a proper diagnosis from your medical provider.
If you are struggling with the symptoms of bile reflux or acid reflux disease, you may need to have your medical records reviewed by an experienced Social Security benefits attorney. We can provide you with a free consultation about your case and help you get approved for benefits.
