Do You Have Fibromyalgia?

Chronic pain is a hard thing to live with. Not only is there intense discomfort but also it impacts your ability to concentrate, your mood, your relationships and your work life. When all other conditions are ruled out, some people receive a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. The medical understanding of this condition is still evolving, but the impacts on a person’s life are clear. If maintaining employment becomes impossible, applying for Socal Security Disability is sometimes the only way people have to support themselves.

The attorneys at [nap_names id=”FIRM-NAME-1″], have extensive skill with these cases. From the moment you walk through our door, we will advocate for you from the beginning to the end of the process. We serve clients in Hudson, Eau Claire and throughout Wisconsin, and we have a proven record of helping clients facing difficult disability-related situations.

A Difficult Diagnosis

Something that sets fibromyalgia apart in the eyes of the Social Security Administration (SSA) is our current medical understanding. Simply put, doctors are not precisely sure what causes fibromyalgia, which can sometimes make diagnosis a process of subtraction. By eliminating all other potential causes of chronic pain and fatigue, fibromyalgia is what remains.

While this bit of trivia makes little difference to the people with the condition, it does to the SSA. That is why it is important to get the most rigorous diagnostic information possible, preferably from a rheumatologist.

Compounding Conditions

Fibromyalgia, even when severe, is often not the defining condition of a successful SSDI application. Instead, it often occurs alongside other conditions that are more clearly defined and form the basis of the disability. These conditions can include:

  • Arthritis
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Nervous system disorders

Navigating The Legal Maze

The legal process for getting disability benefits for fibromyalgia can often be as confusing as the initial diagnosis. Because of the complex medical paperwork that needs to accompany a fibromyalgia disability application, our lawyers will be meticulous, thorough and leave nothing to chance. You will know that your case is being done the right way from the very beginning.
