A little bit of history I have had FMS since 2003 and also have 3 herniated disks in my neck, sleep apnea and diabetes, high blood pressure and migraines. I work full time and am having a really hard time holding down my job. I have been seeing a pain specialist for several years and at my last visit I told her how hard it was to work because of the pain and fatigue. This is where the problem begins, the Dr. told me (of all things) that our government can't afford to pay for disability. Needless to say I was taken back and didn't know what to say. She then told me I needed to change jobs. I have been in this job for almost 15 years and it is not physically hard but it is stressful, but I do not think this is the answer. So my question is does the Dr. have to agree with you about filing? I know the medical records support my illness because she takes very thorough notes. Any comments would be appreciated.
