I have suffered from Fibro now for about 10 years now along with degenerative disc disease and herniated disks in my neck and back. Now I am being tested with a muscle biopsy for something called poly myosotis. I told my pain management Dr that I wanted to go out of work and apply for long term disability. She told me she was sorry but she would not support this. She said she believed I should work thru the pain as a way of dealing with the pain. Strange I know. My question is does the Dr have to support you or can you on your own obtain your records and apply? I am at a total loss so any input is appreciated.
