Can anyone tell me what the difference is? My girlfriend was sent for an IME by Broadspire as she is fighting for Long term disability benefits which were cut off. Her primary doctor and treating rheumatologist both diagnosed her with this for the last 2 years, a severe case. Now this rheum who did this, says it is not classic fibromyalgia but rather Somatoform disorder. We believe that the IME was a sham to support Broadspire's denial, even though this doctor was supposed to be well versed in Fibro. He also stated that she can do her sedentary job with no restrictions. What a shom. Can anyone shed light on the difference. It sounds the same.
