    Tomorrow is the day I see my doctor and talk to her about my decision to file for disability. My husband is going with me....any last minute suggestions on what to say to the doctor? I don't know how she feels about FM and disability. My hands and back are killing me right now so I am going to close but please response or bump. Thanks in advance!

    I told her there was no way I could work with the pain.Heck I can not even take a shower without help.Told her that I needed her signature to go out on FM LA till we can see what we can do to make this better.

    I told her that I wanted to see as many doctors she could think of .She than sent me to an infectious decease specialist 2 rhuemys and a neurologist and a shrink .Took a full year of FM LA leave.And than I kept Her My GP and the neurologist and shrink.I told them I was filling for SSDI and they all agreed.

    They all filed out reports for me for SSDI and I got a bench approval the judge was pleased that I had tried everything to get better.I have been sick since October 2003 got ssdi in September 2005.

    Good luck

Anyway thanks for the suggestions so far I will do thoses.
