Social Security Disability and Fybromyalgia
Individuals who have fibromyalgia have had a very difficult time getting Social Security Disability. Social Security Disability judges have denied claims based on fibromyalgia by finding that the claimant is not believable and that there is no medical diagnosis.
Fortunately, the Social Security Administration has recently reissued a ruling (SSB)12-2p that will help claimants win cases based on fibromyalgia. The ruling states that fibromyalgia can be a medical impairment to work and can be the basis for finding disability.
Under the ruling the claimant must have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia which is consistent with medical standards for diagnosis of fibromyalgia. This new ruling will provide much needed Social Security Disability help for people suffering from fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia claims can be difficult to win. You can improve your chances of winning your fibromyalgia claim by hiring a Social Security Disability attorney to get Social Security Disability help.
