Fibromyalgia and disability
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 2 years ago. I have been in Physical therapy and Accupuncture treatment. Taking
elavil and muscle relaxers. I had to give up my job. I applied for disability and I am still waiting for a response.
What does it take to qualify for disability?

anyone fighting for social security disability should call a company named Allsup to help them. They got my first denial turned around in just a couple of months. My problem is chronic pain from a botched root canal where a dentist burned my nerve using a material containing FORMALDEHYDE as its active ingredient.  They dont' charge if they don't get you approved and if they do, it is 25% of what is owed in arears up to a maximum of $6,000. It is worth a try especially since they deal with all the aggrevation. I did nothing after I signed the medical release forms. Call 1-866-324-0758 and ask for Jenny S.  She was very helpful and sympathetic.
