Fibromyalgia: Are Benefits Available?
People who suffer from chronic, severe pain often labor under that pain for many months or years before finally seeking treatment. In many cases, a definitive diagnosis is difficult to get. Although fibromyalgia is now widely recognized by physicians, as yet its presence cannot be confirmed through a specific laboratory test. This is also true for disabling conditions such as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) and chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS).
Are You Unable To Work Due To Chronic Pain Or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Your pain is real, and work may be impossible for you. Unfortunately, getting approved for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits on the basis of fibromyalgia or another chronic pain condition can be an intimidating challenge as well. At Philip J. Fulton Law Office in Columbus, Ohio, we are up to that challenge. Over the past 35-plus years, our attorneys have been helping the injured, chronically ill and disabled get the benefits they need.
Upfront Counsel Or Skilled, Results-Driven Representation For Your SSA Appeal
We can advise you on your eligibility and assist in preparing your application for disability benefits if needed. More often, we provide comprehensive counsel and representation after applications are denied by the SSA, which is a common occurrence. Our approach is rigorous and determined. In your case, necessary steps may include:
- Effectively presenting the diagnosis and other findings of a highly trained rheumatologist
- Structuring your case for a successful SSDI appeal by gathering evidence that you suffer from multiple disabling conditions — such as severe depression as an added consequence of fibromyalgia, RSD or CRPS
- Skillfully navigating all the steps necessary to get your case evaluated fairly and objectively, in light of our decades of experience within this complex government system
