Real Pain, Real Help
Fibromyalgia Disability Claims in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia
Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a debilitating disorder of a not entirely clear origin. It severely impacts the daily lives of its sufferers by leaving them unable to work or to perform ordinary tasks without experiencing intense pain and fatigue. Unfortunately, the disorder, though widely accepted in the medical community, is not one that reveals itself clearly through medical and scientific evidence alone.
At Robert Peirce & Associates, we understand the realities of chronic pain disorders like fibromyalgia and through more than two decades of experience, have learned how to overcome the medical evidence problem faced by individuals suffering from this syndrome. For attorneys and experienced staff who can help you secure SSD and SSI benefits, please do not hesitate to call or contact our firm today for a free consultation.
Symptoms of fibromyalgia include:
- Generalized body pain
- Tender points (pain points)
- Poor sleep
- Chronic fatigue
- Digestive issues
- Balance problems
- Anxiety and depression
According to American College of Rheumatology, there are 18 tender points on the human body that will usually be highly sensitive to pressure in fibromyalgia sufferers. Consequently, an 18-point trigger test is often used by doctors to diagnose this disorder.
However, even if you are given this test and you do receive a medical diagnosis for FMS, there may still be obstacles to overcome.
Our lawyers understand that and are careful to make certain every detail is considered before any claim is looked at by the SSA or the administrative law judges assigned to our clients' cases.
