    MY SISTER HAS BEEN VERY ILL FOR A LONG TIME. SHE DEALS WITH RAYNAUDS, AND PERMENANT NERVE DAMAGE AND WAS JUST DIAGNOSED WITH FIBRO. SHE HAS BEEN TURNED DOWN FOR DISABILITY, BY THE LAWYER SHE WAS DEALING WITH, SHE HAD A LAWYER THAT SHE FOUND ON TV. SHE LIVES IN YORBA LINDA, CA DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A LAWYER IN THE ORANGE COUNTY AREA. SHE WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE SOME HELP.
    THANKS, CAROL

    It's REALLY hard to get disability on fibro being that 80% of the population havent accepted the medical evidence proving it's a real condition... i have had fibro over 20 yrs, and it is indeed very crippling. She probably will get turned down at least 3 times before she is approved for disability. So sorry I dont have a lawyer for you, but I used to live there, and can make some calls for you
