    My husband filed for SS in April of 2002. At first he was denied. However, we appealed for a hearing. Since the 1st denial, he was officially diagnosed with Fybromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain. We continually received papers to fill out. Added anything new from the doctor or new medicines. His hearing was July 15, 2003. We went without an attorney this time to give it a try. We were fully prepared and got to look over his file before the hearing. We found that they did not have some information from the first doctor that treated him for his Work Comp injury. I had copies and supplied them. The hearing went better than we expected and the judge was super nice. We got the news about 2 weeks later: Fully Favorable. Now we have to wait up to 60 days to find out the details of the payments, etc. I can't believe that we got it without an attorney and in about 1year and 4 months.

    Good luck. Hope this helps.
