Fibromalgya is a cause of Disability?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

You can live a full life despite having fibromyalgia. There will be hard days but try to stay positive and keep moving even it it's just a little bit - set small goals!!! If you are asking if you can file for disability - yes, but it is extremely hard to prove because there is not test for fibromyalgia (like a blood test showing that you have it) and it could take years and a lot of stress going through the process. I just filed my own case but only because I fractured my hip and that was grounds for disability (because it has been broken for over a year) and only because the extra funds will help me to get better treatment. I do work and the job is a great fit for me but it is very low pay and hard to make ends meet.

I hope this helps - you are welcome to contact me if you have any other questions!

Yes, I got approved for Fibro almost 2 years ago and I now help others do the same. I help an average of 15 people every month in the Disability Approval Process. You can find me and message me on Facebook, or go to the link below to get some answers.

That surprises my @A MyFibroTeam Member - I just filed with a non union fracture of my pelvis for over a year and included that I had fibromyalgia (and all my other ailments) - I finally filed because SSA had the fracture listed in their blue book as a disability - they determined that!!! And my case was denied and it will take a year to get into court to appeal the denial. Really frustrated because I would have had to move back home otherwise so I took at job offer that put my income over the limits. I am still entitled to my back pay for the fracture - they aren't denying that I have it - but I will no longer be able to file for disability (unless something happens between now and my appeal hearing) because I returned to work in a full-time position - or at least one that was over sustainable living levels.
