Cannot Work Because Of Fibromyalgia?

People who suffer from fibromyalgia or other chronic pain conditions understand the disabling effects of these illnesses. But physical evidence of these illnesses is not always apparent. This can present obstacles for people who are seeking Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Nevertheless, by gathering the right kind of medical information, it is possible to prove the disabling nature of fibromyalgia and obtain SSDI or SSI benefits.

Dale Buchanan & Associates is a team of lawyers who have dedicated their careers to helping people with disabilities and illnesses get SSDI and SSI benefits. We have a great deal of experience representing people with fibromyalgia and other chronic pain illnesses in Social Security appeals. When you choose our law firm, we will work hard to get disability benefits for you.

Is Fibromyalgia A Disability?

Legally speaking, no illness is a disability in and of itself. It is the disabling nature of fibromyalgia that can qualify a person for SSDI or SSI benefits, not the existence of the illness itself.

That is the approach we use to obtain disability benefits for fibromyalgia sufferers and others with physical disabilities. We obtain medical source documents attesting to pain such as records of prescription medications and evidence that prevents the sufferer from walking or carrying out daily tasks. In some cases, we work with rheumatologists to document the disabling effects that fibromyalgia has on our clients' lives.

When representing you, we can also provide guidance on ways to communicate with your doctor about your pain and fatigue. Getting this information into your medical record can play an important role in obtaining the benefits you need. You can depend on Dale Buchanan & Associates to do everything we can to perfect your claim so that you can get the SSDI or SSI benefits you need.
