Insurance Claim for Fibromyalgia

At Ottawa Disability Lawyers, we recognize the challenges individuals with fibromyalgia face in their daily lives and understand the importance of securing their fibromyalgia claim for long-term disability benefits to support their well-being.

What is Fibromyalgia?


Fibromyalgia is a complex condition characterized by chronic, widespread pain that often goes hand in hand with cognitive difficulties and other physical symptoms, including chronic fatigue syndrome, mood changes, and sleep problems.

Understanding Fibromyalgia Symptoms and Diagnosis

Living with fibromyalgia means coping with a wide range of symptoms that can significantly impact your quality of life.

The hallmark of this condition is the pervasive and often debilitating widespread musculoskeletal pain experienced throughout the body. However, fibromyalgia goes beyond pain. Many individuals also struggle with cognitive difficulties, including problems with memory, concentration, and mental clarity. Chronic fatigue syndrome can leave individuals feeling constantly exhausted, and mood changes, such as anxiety and depression, are common. Sleep disturbances further compound the challenges faced by those with fibromyalgia.

Getting a fibromyalgia diagnosis can be a complex process due to the lack of objective medical testing and the lack of a discernible cause. Medical professionals rely on a combination of symptom evaluation and medical history to diagnose fibromyalgia.

It is crucial to have detailed medical records documenting your symptoms and the impact they have on your daily life when pursuing a long-term disability claim stemming from fibromyalgia symptoms. These records serve as valuable evidence to support your case and demonstrate the severity of your condition.

The Impact of Fibromyalgia on Work

Fibromyalgia can significantly affect an individual’s ability to function at work. The chronic pain, cognitive difficulties, and chronic fatigue syndrome associated with this condition make it difficult and challenging to perform daily tasks effectively.

Even simple activities can become overwhelming, leading to decreased productivity and an overall decline in work performance. In certain professions, the challenges posed by fibromyalgia can also present health and safety risks.

We understand the unique concerns faced by individuals with fibromyalgia in maintaining employment and strive to provide the necessary legal support to navigate this complex landscape.
