Help for People With Debilitating Illnesses
Despite affecting tens of millions of people, relatively little is known about chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia. In addition to making treatment or a cure difficult, this means that obtaining Social Security Disability/Supplemental Security Income (SSD/SSI) benefits for either disease can be a tough process. It is possible, however, with the help of an experienced SSD/SSI lawyer.
At the Robert A. Koenigsberg Law Offices, we represent people suffering from CFS and fibromyalgia. We understand the challenges associated with obtaining benefits for these conditions, and we will guide you through the SSD/SSI process. For a free consultation with a New York City chronic fatigue syndrome attorney, please call 646-480-1625 or contact us online.
How CFS and Fibromyalgia Can Affect Your Life
CFS and fibromyalgia share many of the same types of symptoms, which may have debilitating effects. These symptoms include:
- Chronic pain
- Depression and anxiety
- Fatigue and exhaustion
- Sore muscles and joints
- Abdominal pain
- Trouble sleeping
- Difficulty concentrating
There are many additional symptoms and complications associated with these disorders. Because people suffer from multiple symptoms simultaneously, their social, home and work lives are severely disrupted.
To obtain SSD/SSI benefits, you must provide medical proof that the fatigue, pain, depression and other symptoms make it impossible to perform daily and work tasks. Your medical records need to be very specific and make clear that the disease seriously impacts your life. Fibromyalgia sufferers will benefit from including medical reports from a rheumatologist.
Please call our office at 646-480-1625 to schedule an appointment with a Bronx fibromyalgia attorney today. We will help you fight for the benefits you need.
