Social Security Disability, Fibromyalgia
by Jim Abernathy
Fibromyalgia is a legitimate medical condition that the Social Security Administration recognizes may be disabling. According to Social Security's rules, 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 3 months." Further, the rule states that fibromyalgia "can be the basis for a finding of disability," but that to do so, it must be "established by appropriate medical evidence."
