What Types of Medical Problems are Severe Enough to Get Disability?

There is no magic list of medical conditions that can get disability.  Technically, any condition that is severe enough and interferes with a person’s ability to work can be disabling.  For example, cancer or HIV/AIDS or any other life threatening conditions are not automatically disabling conditions.  Nor are common conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes automatic losers.  Nearly any condition, if severe enough can be found to be disabling.   What is important is how the medical condition affects your ability to work a 40 hour full time job.
