Helping Those Suffering Disability Because Of Fibromyalgia And Chronic Fatigue

In recent years, several illnesses that were previously perplexing to doctors have received clearer diagnoses. Two of these diseases are fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

What Is Fibromyalgia?

Characterized by widespread, chronic pain and many other symptoms, fibromyalgia diagnoses are increasing across the U.S. People who suffer from fibromyalgia are often unable to hold steady employment and function in their daily lives. It is for these reasons that disability benefits are now being granted to fibromyalgia sufferers. However, it is important that you have the assistance of an experienced lawyer when seeking SSD benefits, in order to ensure that all of the proper documentation is obtained and filed.

Benefits Regarding Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is usually unknown. However, this disorder of the central nervous system is debilitating and leaves the sufferer with constant exhaustion, chronic back pain, muscle aches, pain and possible sleep dysfunction. Much like individuals who are diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue patients are unable to complete daily personal and job-related tasks due to their level of fatigue and pain. A lawyer familiar with the SSD process can help you understand if your chronic fatigue diagnosis and situation meets the criteria for disability benefits. If so, attorney Marjorie Drake can assist you in applying for benefits or appealing if you have already been denied.
