    Go on the FIBROMYALGIA BOARD here and in bold they have a thread about Social Security Disability. Please read everything on it.

    Truthfully, unless your doctors tell Social Security that you are totally disabled and unable to do any job, then your doctors are not helping you and you will probably continue to be denied. I'm sorry for what you're going through and it is probably time to change to doctors that will support you 100 percent in your seeking disability. Prayers and hugs.

    I was just awarded at the reconsideration stage. Fibromyalgia was my fight!
    It can be done in Georgia.

    As I told you before, THE FIBROMYALGIA BOARD will be the best board for you. They have a full long thread on Social Security Disability information and those are the people to direct your questions on getting SSD for fibro. This is just a general health board.

    Also, you have to get your doctors lined up BEFORE you apply for Social Security Disability. All your doctors must sign the Social Security RFC Statement that you are permanently disabled and UNABLE TO DO ANY JOB (NOT JUST THE JOB YOU USED TO DO). If your doctors won't agree to this, then Social Security will deny you each time. You have to put in hard effort lining up your doctors, medical records and test results prior to starting your SSD case because SSD does not prove your case for you and you have to have strong Fibro doctors behind you every step of the way.

    Now go to the FIBROMYALGIA BOARD and find out if they know any doctors in your area that are good fibro doctors--that's your first step. Then see them and appeal. Good luck and hugs.
