Fibromyalgia and Social Security Disability
The chronic condition which causes pain, stiffness, and tenderness in a person’s joints, muscles, or tendons is called Fibromyalgia. However, it wasn’t until 1981 when it was named and recognized as a true medical condition by Dr. Muhammad Yunus and some of his colleagues. Dr. Yunus called it “pain in the muscles and tissues,” and its causes remained speculative at best. Although the condition is not necessarily life-threatening or a progressive disease, there is currently no cure for it. Fortunately, the awareness of the condition has grown rapidly in recent years – which has made it easier to win fibromyalgia disability benefits.
Fibromyalgia can interfere with your ability to perform work activity. Symptoms including chronic pain, fatigue, depression/anxiety, restlessness when trying to sleep, and more can make it difficult for those with fibromyalgia to maintain employment.
As a result of this, you may need to consider applying for Social Security Disability benefits, as the unpredictability of Fibromyalgia attacks makes it difficult for you to work and maintain a normal, productive lifestyle. The application process itself is riddled with tons of bureaucratic red tape since you will be dealing with federal and even state government in order to prove your case and receive your benefits. Therefore, you should consider hiring a Social Security Disability attorney who is experienced and qualified in helping you get those benefits that you deserve and need. If you have fibromyalgia and think you may have a claim for disability benefits, then I encourage you to browse around this fibromyalgia disability site and even fill out the free case review form on the right side of this page. Either I or an attorney colleague near where you live will contact you to discuss your case in greater detail.
