Social Security Disability Benefits for Fibromyalgia

Texans suffering from inability to work due to Fibromyalgia and/or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome face unique challenges in securing social security disability benefits. Social security regulations require that a disability be supported by “objective medical evidence”. It can easier to meet this criterion for conditions such as a back impairment where x-rays of MRI results show structural abnormalities. The diagnosis of fibromyalgia is based on subjective medical findings (positive tender points) and chronic fatigue syndrome is a diagnosis of exclusion. Both maladies feature severe fatigue and constant pain that cannot necessarily be viewed through the lenses of a microscope, or on an x-ray.
