What Is Fibromyalgia And Chronic Pain?
Fibromyalgia is defined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as a condition causing widespread pain, abnormal pain processing, sleep disturbance, fatigue and often psychological distress.
Many who suffer from fibromyalgia, or chronic pain, experience severe discomfort such that they are unable to work or perform normal daily activities as part of their routine. If you fall into this category, you should contact an attorney to see if you qualify for benefits.
Because each medical condition has different methods of diagnosis and treatment, the SSA will carefully examine your medical records when determining whether you qualify for disability benefits as a result of a condition, illness or injury.
Generally speaking, any condition (including fibromyalgia) that prevents an applicant from working for at least a 12-month period would qualify him or her to receive benefits.
