Symptoms and Effects of CFS and Fibromyalgia
People with CFS or fibromyalgia often suffer the same types of symptoms, many of which are debilitating. These symptoms include:
- Depression and anxiety
- Chronic pain
- Fatigue and exhaustion
- Trouble sleeping
- Sore muscles and joints
- Abdominal pain
- Difficulty concentrating
There are many other symptoms and complications associated with these disorders. Because people suffer from multiple symptoms, the effect is often devastating to their social, home and work lives. To obtain SSD benefits, you need to provide proof that the fatigue, pain, depression and other symptoms affect your ability to perform daily tasks. The records need to be very detailed and make clear that the disease seriously impairs your life. Fibromyalgia sufferers will benefit from medical reports from a rheumatologist.
We will discuss the details of your case further with you. Please call our office at 213-784-4386 to schedule an appointment with a Los Angeles fibromyalgia attorney.
