    the sections detailing lupus and rheumatoid arthritis are often used to compare the symptoms and limitations of fibro as being as disabling as, or equal to, or greater than these diseases.

    I seem to remember Madwolf and MemoryLane having posts that offered some further insight into this. You might do a search on Disability and Blue Book Listings to see what other info that brings up.

    Fibro falls under Listing 1.02 in SS's Listings. Even though this listing deals more this joint-type arthritic problems, it's the closest thing they have to fibro.

    My atty. had my docs sign that I was disabled according to Listing 1.02.

    To get to the "blue book". Go to SSA's web site.

    In the middle of the page, the Disability and SSI section has the following link: More disability information

    At the next page, in the More Infomration section on the right, take the link: For Health Professionals - Disability Evaluation Book Now Online

    The book doesn't list CFS, and I have no idea what they compare it to.
