Pursing Disability Claims for Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a complex disease that is very difficult to understand. People diagnosed with fibromyalgia suffer chronic pain in the tendons, ligaments and muscles, as well as constant fatigue. Many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia are self reported, and it is difficult to find corroborating medical evidence. Fibromyalgia cannot be currently diagnosed with a blood test, and the joints affected do not display physical symptoms of damage.

An attorney at the law firm of Abromson & Carey, understands how difficult it is to get a disability claim for fibromyalgia accepted by your employer, a private disability insurance policy or the Social Security Administration. Many ERISA insurance carriers have a two-year benefit limit on self-reported illnesses, including fibromyalgia, and denial or termination of benefits is common. We understand that the complications of fibromyalgia are real, however, and promise to fight hard on your behalf. For a free initial consultation, contact a skilled disability attorney at Abromson & Carey in Newark.

Diagnosis of Fibromyalgia

The American College of Rheumatology has established diagnosis criteria for fibromyalgia, including:

  • Widespread pain in all four quadrants of the body and in the axial skeleton for at least three consecutive months
  • Pain resulting from pressure in at least 11 of the 18 designated tender points

Besides muscle aches, you may also experience spasms and enduring chronic pain that is only relieved by prescription narcotics. Many who suffer from fibromyalgia are unable to work due to unrelieved fatigue.
