Articles on Fibromyalgia Disability Claims
Fibromyalgia is a chronic, widespread pain disorder marked by numbness and tingling in the extremities as well as stiffness in the muscles and joints. The intensity of pain can vary, and it may not always be present. Fatigue, sleep problems, waking unrefreshed, headaches, memory problems (“fibro fog”), depression, anxiety disorder, and irritable bowel syndrome are common symptoms.
Fibromyalgia is notoriously hard to diagnose. Fibromyalgia exhibits symptoms that are similar to illnesses, and proper diagnostic tests are not always performed. Insurers and federal disability programs often view self-reported, “invisible” conditions with suspicion and doubt.
