Fill Out this Form for Help With Your Disability Benefits

You know how fibromyalgia limits your life and your ability to work. It’s hard for other people to see, so they write it off as a made up condition, or an excuse to quit working.

Fibromyalgia is real.

About 4 million U.S. adults have it, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

And Social Security recognizes it as a serious condition that can leave you unable to work. Social Security awards disability income for fibromyalgia, so despite your health and financial struggles, you can hold on to your sense of independence.

But the same challenges that keep other people from understanding what you’re dealing with also make it tricky to qualify for benefits.

Fibromyalgia comes with a wide range of symptoms that can easily be misdiagnosed as any number of other conditions.

Hawaii disability attorney Danielle Beaver understands that you would never choose to live with fibromyalgia and have to stop working.

When you need disability benefits, she makes sure you have support.

Why it’s Tricky to Qualify for Disability for Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is different for everyone. You may experience pain, fatigue, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, or any number of other symptoms. There’s no test for it. Its cause is unknown.

But in 2012, Social Security ruled fibromyalgia is a “complex medical condition characterized primarily by widespread pain in the joints, muscles, tendons, or nearby soft tissues that has persisted for at least three months.”

This means if you can prove a history of widespread pain, you may qualify for disability benefits that can help you pay your rent, buy groceries, make your car payment and cover medical expenses.

But convincing Social Security that your symptoms aren’t caused by another illness—and that they rule out working—takes evidence and effort.

It doesn’t cost you anything to get Danielle Beaver and her legal team to evaluate your situation.

How to Prove Your Fibromyalgia Case

One of the most important parts of filing your disability claim is providing records of your condition, including doctor appointments, medical evaluations, test results, psychologist reports and treatments.

You can also send testimony from friends, neighbors, family and employers who have seen how fibromyalgia affects your routine.

You need this evidence to prove that you suffer regularly from at least six of these qualifying symptoms:

  • Muscle pain or weakness, numbness or tingling
  • Irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, frequent urination, bladder spasms
  • Fatigue, tiredness, insomnia
  • Thinking or remembering problems
  • Headaches, dizziness, seizures
  • Pain or cramps in the abdomen or upper abdomen
  • Depression, nervousness
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Chest pain, heartburn
  • Blurred vision, dry eyes
  • Fever
  • Wheezing, shortness of breath
  • Numbness and temperature sensitivity in fingers and toes
  • Hives, welts, rashes, Itching, easy bruising
  • Oral ulcers, dry mouth, change in taste, loss of taste
  • Loss of appetite
  • Sun sensitivity
  • Hearing difficulties, ringing in the ears
