More Things to Know about Fibromyalgia…

Fact 3 – About 90% of people with fibromyalgia are also battling severe fatigue and/or a sleep disorder.

Two of the primary indications of fibromyalgia are extreme fatigue and sleep disorders. These problems can, themselves, give rise to other serious issues, only some of which may include:

  • Cognitive impairments
  • Memory problems
  • Chronic lack of energy. 

Ultimately, these issues can make it extremely difficult for people living with fibromyalgia to be able to hold down a job, particularly if that job involves any type of physical labor and/or intense mental focus. When this may be the case, pursuing disability benefits for fibromyalgia can be people’s best bet to getting the financial support they may need as they pursue medical care for their condition.

Fact 4 – Psychological, as well as physical, symptoms are associated with fibromyalgia.

While a discussion of fibromyalgia symptoms often focuses on the physical symptoms of the condition (like, for instance, pain and muscle tenderness), there are often some significant psychological aspects of this condition. Specifically, these can include anxiety disorders, mood disorders and cognition problems.

Such psychological aspects of fibromyalgia can further impact people’s ability to work and/or hold down a job while living with this condition. While this means that getting a proper diagnosis and pursuing all prescribed treatments is extremely important to overall health and wellness, it also means that going through the process necessary to obtain disability benefits will be critical.
