Fibromyalgia and SSDI: New Ruling by the SSA

Late last month, the Social Security Administration put into effect rules to help the SSA and administrative law judges evaluate Fibromyalgia for Social Security Disability purposes. It explains how the SSA "develop[s] evidence to establish that a person has a medically determinable impairment of fibromyalgia and how [it] evaluate[s] fibromyalgia in disability claims and continuing disability reviews under titles II and XVI of the Social Security Act."

I am disabled but Social Security won't approve my application. Now what?

Social Security Disability can feel like a game. If you don't provide the right information, your application is denied. You try again with a different set of cards. You lose again. They tell you that you can play a few more rounds, and you wonder: Is it worth it? They make you wait months between each round. Meanwhile, your disability is not getting any better and you fear that you will lose your home, your car, your lifestyle.
