The claimant’s primary problem was fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia claims are often difficult to establish because they are largely dependent on subjective evidence. Fortunately, the claimant’s rheumatologist and her family doctor were beach familiar with the claimant’s problem, and provided reports explaining how the fibromyalgia not only satisfied the medical criteria for the syndrome, but also limited her functionality. The claimant was approved for SSD shortly after I submitted those medical reports.
