Fibromyalgia Disability: If you have been suffering from Fibromyalgia symptoms and have been unable to work, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. The symptoms of Fibromyalgia, discussed below, are often hard to describe and harder demonstrate. That is why many people applying for SSDI benefits because of their Fibromyalgia symptoms are denied. You need the help of an experienced disability attorney to help prove your Fibromyalgia disability and appeal your SSDI denial. At Chaplin & Gonet we have been helping clients appeal SSDI denials for thirty years. You deserve the kind of experience and dedication we bring to bear for every client.
