Disability Benefits For People With Chronic Fatigue

The acceptance of Social Security Disability claims often depends on the type of disability that an applicant has. Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a malady that often poses difficulties for SSDI applicants. A Tulsa Social Security Disability attorney can help applicants understand how the SSDI application process works for various disabilities.

The symptoms of CFS include a constant feeling of being hurt and exhausted. People suffering from CFS may not be able to pinpoint symptoms beyond a general feeling of malaise all over their body. As such, it can be difficult for doctors to diagnose. In many respects, CFS poses the same troubles as fibromyalgia when people seek SSDI benefits.

People suffering from either fibromyalgia or CFS can take several steps to improve their chances of having their SSDI claim accepted. First, if possible, a specialist should make the diagnosis. Because of the general description of pain and exhaustion with these syndromes, a general practitioner’s diagnosis is not as convincing as a specialist’s, such as a rheumatologist’s. Specialists can provide more details and evidence to support their diagnosis of CFS.

If the SSDI application results in denial the first time around, applicants should not give up. They may appeal and submit new evidence, and a Tulsa Social Security Disability lawyer can help an applicant put together his or her best application.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.
