Social Security Benefits for Fibromyalgia | St. Petersburg Social Security Disability Lawyer

The Social Security Administration has acknowledged that fibromyalgia is not diagnosed based on gold standard objective testing like MRI’s orĀ  x-rays. The American College of Rheumatology has created a standard for the diagnosis of fibromyalgia which is, in part, based on subjective response you make while being examined.

An administrative law judge cannot reject the treating physician’s opinion regarding work-related limitations based on the absence of objective evidence.

However, I always like to have the treating physician and my client on the same page about your physical activities and restictions and limitations. I use a fibromyalgia residual functional disability form. Contact Nancy Cavey, a St. Petersburg Social Security disability attorney for a copy of the fibromyalgia residual functional disability form.
