Fibromyalgia lawyers

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia lawyers


1488606 tn?1288196238 Working in a restaurant I have met lots of people over the yars with the same symptoms as mine. One woman claims she is on disability for Fibromyalgia.....I am not ready for that yet, but was wondering if anyone on this forum is on disability for fibromyalgia, was it hard to get since most doctors think we are just crazy.
19182206 tn?1473573335 I am a totally different person and unrecognisable to my family, friends and to myself. I was given the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. I actually think that anybody who has the same symptoms as myself and others are just put into that category without any tests or retribution towards the Makers Of Pegylated Interferon OR Ribavirin. Can I sue using a No win, no fee firm of solicitors (Lawyers) or seek compensation from the Drug companies themselves?. I have been unable to work for 5 years!
Avatar n tn My question is about Fibro medications and wanting to hear from others' experiences during pregnancy w/fibromyalgia (or chronic pain issues). I also NEED encouragement how to taper off of valium (I am down to from 20 mg to 10 mg a day for anxiety & muscle pain, but feel stuck here) I am probably about 3weeks along and happy about it!!
Avatar f tn My obgyn recommended being tested for fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis. The fibromyalgia test came back negative so i am trying to pursue testing for MS, however, my PCP of my HMO refuses to give me a referral to a neurologist and also refused my direct request for MRI. The PCP doesn't believe I have MS. My mental acuity continues to decline. Even had a couple instances of complete mental blockages.
Avatar f tn Well, another thing added to my list, I have been trying to get disablity since my surgery in 2009, well I was denied last month and now my lawyers told me that they are closing my case and I need to start all over again, and bring new medical records. I have been denied 3 times and now it's at the level of going to the Appeals counsel, they informed that No lawyer will handle a case that has reached the Appeals all the back pay is thrown out the window.
Avatar f tn It sounds like you are upset that you got a diagnosis for fibromyalgia. If you don't have fibromyalgia, then you are left with the pain with no reason for it. Yes, your doctor is right that there is no test. You may NOT have all the tender points, but may still have fibromyalgia in the absence of anything else. I have been to lectures by the top researcher on fibromyalgia in the world (Dr. Clauwsan at Univ of MI) who specifically told us the information.
2078040 tn?1332045019 I have fibromyalgia & shingles & im barely getting any help from my doctor's & im not sure what to do about my treatment my conditions or how to get disability since iv lost my job because of my conditions
Avatar f tn Currently on a Long Term Disability for Migraines, Trigeminal Neuropathy, Occipital Neuralgia, LBB Left Bundle Branch Block (heart) and Fibromyalgia, I am exhausted.... Have tried numerous meds now Insurance Company is saying they wont cover as a medical disability due to medical evidence. I have fought this for about a year and stand losing my job of 23 years. Can anyone give me some support and help me to determine where to go from here.
582769 tn?1218102048 We all need lawyers. And both need us, a patient or a client. ========================================= It feels like bone to bone as I walk. Like nothing is padding the bones in the hip sockets inside. I waddle like a duck, side to side with extreme pain until I freeze up and fall, but mostly, I live with a cane at my side when going out and about now. I now need a wheelchair. I have all medicals involved.
Avatar f tn I also have fibromyalgia, which causes constant pain, and am treated with Cymbalta. Could this be a problem?
5764859 tn?1400885356 Luckily I had my doctor on board my psychiatrist and my counselor all in agreement I suffer from schizoaffective disorder, ocd, agoraphobia, generalized anxiety with panic attacks, and dissociative identity disorder not including my physical ailments of chronic migraines and fibromyalgia when the judge based their decision it was all on my mental health hope this helps
Avatar n tn my fibromyalgia, diabetes, and fibromyalgia. It is hindering my life in walking and even in hurting when not on. Can it be anything else.? What can I do for it? sometimes hurting and sometimes burning (alittle on other foot). It really impairs me. I test my numbers daily and they are fine... Help, please, it makes me miserable.
701334 tn?1262857103 I don't tell any doctor I am seeing that I was once told I had fibromyalgia, because the minute you tell them that, they stop looking for the cause of your pain. Now, I do believe that my body is this way because that is just how I was made. I am a weird one, a freak of nature as my husband calls it. In my opinion a lot of my issues stemmed from being untreated, misdiagnosed with graves disease for six months, hit two thyroid storms before having a TT. I think that did a number on my body.
Avatar n tn I had on there listed things like asthma, depression, fibromyalgia, etc., etc. I got my doctors to write letters for me. I got my social worker/counselor to write a letter for me. Finally, after all these years, I won and I got a large back payment. I also got my sister who is a nurse, to come with me to the court hearing and testify as a witness. If I was well, I'd be working. I certainly was never one to take advantage of the system because I actually enjoyed being able to earn my way.
483733 tn?1326802046 I am suffering from depression, fibromyalgia and likely Lupus (they are still trying to confirm diagnosis). I am on remeron for the depression - it has been just over a month. The pain and fatigue from my diseases really bring me down. On good days with those my mood is OK but I am still having so many bad days. I am feeling so anxious that I am not keeping up in my job and am so afraid I am going to really mess up and lose it all. I don't want to do anything.

Avatar f tn At that point though, it will pay all covered expenses back to the date of his original application. Also, the state lawyers can't represent him with to get his disability since his medicaid case has been closed so he is trying to get alternate representation. Its a slooow process. Pray is practically the only productive thing we can do. We have many "righteous men" praying for him & the family. I know that God has a plan & I trust Him to know what's best.
Avatar f tn No I never was able to as I found out the Govt enacted a new law ERISA and with that there were no local lawyers familiar with it and to fight it with this new law would make it a FEDERAL case, so it would cost more to fight then I would, no one will help me.... It was the fact in retail even HR has to walk the floor for 4 hrs at a time and clean out dressing rooms and fold clothes and help with customer complaints....far more then just sitting at a desk like they felt....
Avatar f tn Do you have Fibromyalgia and still manage to hold a job? Feel free to leave comments about what your job is and how you cope.
475300 tn?1312426726 He treated me for everything under the sun, physical therapy, fibromyalgia, and I always had elevated liver enzymes, he even had an ultrasound done on my liver. The atty I talked to was aghast along with everyone else I have told. Thanks for listening, just had to vent here.
172715 tn?1285498090 haha You took the words right out of my mouth, my lawyers mouth, his assistant's mouth (who was crying for me) and my husband's mouth. Thank you all for your support.
Avatar f tn I have an apt tomorrow with my regular dr to see about getting on something for depression but I know that takes time to work. I also have fibromyalgia, COPD and a few other things. It's too hard to get on disability and takes forever if you are approved that I'd probably loose my house and everything else. I just don't know what to do. HR gave me no choice but to go down on my hours but I can't get my work done and need the money.
1477978 tn?1289505731 I also have fibromyalgia. You should ask about that especially because of the gastro issues you are having. It does sound like you need proper testing for Lyme to rule that out as well. When you go for your next appointment insist on having Lyme, Lupus and fibromyalgia ruled out. Tell them of your financial situation so that they can hopefully economize on the tests and save you time and money. Good luck and please let us know what they say.
678449 tn?1263558216 They conceded I have erythromelalgia, bilateral joint inflammation and possible SLE. I do have fibromyalgia, IBS, unresolved severe sleep issues, severe depression and anxiety and episodes of agoraphobia, a bone spur, ruptured disk and FJA in C4 C5, and a grade 2 tear of both meniscus in my L knee and arthritis patellofemoral syndrome, in essence I have lost 70% of the cartilage in my knee. Now I have to wait another year for fair hearing.

Avatar f tn First I walk into the office and I have to register and sign a bunch of stuff, like HIPAA privacy, right to treat, and the paper that means you won't go through lawyers. I read the first paragraph of that third paper. In it it says that by signing I agree to waive my right to a judge and attorney and go before their arbitrator? (Not sure on the work). I said I would not sign something that would be signing away my rights as a citizen. They were not very happy about that.
1139109 tn?1457409935 We are eating lots of veggies and fruits in addition to mostly chicken for protein. Sleep has been an issue for years (according to the Dr.s I also have fibromyalgia). I do drink a LOT of water. Most of what I drink is filtered water. My Endo here has been monitoring my hormone levels closely and up through the last visit had been adjusting the hydrocortisone.
Avatar f tn My LTD denied me...and bcuz of a new law it is now considered a federal case...there r not too many lawyers that have the knowledge of working these cases, so very diff to fight, plus it is a federal case and will cost more to fight...that is our gov working against us. Make sure u have a lawyer for the initial review and plenty of records supporting the claim from ur drs.
Avatar m tn A couple final thoughts- i hope you take the advice about calling legal aid first, calling lawyers for free consultations, and asking around for pro bono lawyers! Did you say your neighbor was a lawyer? Maybe they know someone who will take your case for free. Like someone said, I think some attorneys have to do some each year, it may vary state to state (my attorney friend does, plus he does a couple per year because he wants to or knows the person.) It will be worth it to ask around.
