Birmingham Social Security Disability Lawyer Fibromyalgia

Birmingham Social Security Disability Lawyer Fibromyalgia

Do you live in Birmingham Alabama, or anywhere in Jefferson County Alabama, and suffer from fibromyalgia? If so, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits or SSI benefits if your symptoms warrant.

Fibromyalgia, also known as fibrositis or fibromyositis, is defined by the American College of Rheumatology as "widespread pain in all four quadrants of the body for a minimum duration of 3 months....".

Fibromyalgia is medical condition characterized by a lack of objective medical findings...its cause is unknown and its symptoms subjective in nature.

Since doctors do not know what causes or leads to fibromyalgia, there is no objective test which shows its presence, so there is no listing covering fibromyositis in the Code of Federal Listings, but this does not mean that you cannot be awarded Social Security Disability Benefits or SSI benefits for fibromyositis, what you have to show is how your fibromyalgia limits your physical and/or mental ability to engage in sustained, full time substantial gainful employment. An experienced Birmingham Social Security Disability attorney can help you show the court that you cannot engage in work activities in a sustained fashion, 5 days a week, 8 hours a day, 50 weeks a year.

If you live in Birmingham Alabama, or anywhere in Jefferson County Alabama, and you suffer or someone you care about suffers from fibromyalgia and you have questions about a claim for Social Security Disability benefits or SSI benefits, the experienced Birmingham Social Security Disability lawyers at Powell and Denny would be happy to speak with you.
