Can I get disability benefits for Fibromyalgia: 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 single objective test which shows its presence, but that does not prevent it from being a condition which can support your claim for disability benefits. SSR 12-2p sets forth the criteria to be used in the evaluation of whether fibromyalgia is, in and of itself disabling; however, if you do not meet these criteria, you may still be entitled to disability benefits if your condition, in conjunction with any other physical or mental impairment, prevents you from returning to work you have done in the past and other substantial work you might be qualified to perform given your age, education and acquired work skills.
If you or a loved one lives in Alabama or Tennessee, you are suffering from the effects of Fibromyalgia and you believe you are disabled as the result and are entitled to Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, you do not have to take on the Social Security Administration alone.
