Fibromyalgia - denying me because of it being "subjective".

Hi! I have had what I believe to be fibromyalgia for many years but it was tolerable. As of January 2012 I started not being able to function. I have mental confusion, lack of focus, Pain all over my body ( all trigger points) and tiredness. I have Gerd and Anxiety disorder and Bad TMJ pain. I have a desk job and it was killing me to sit all day and use the computer. My back and neck would ache to the point of tears and my wrists ached from typing. I have seen my primary care doctor and a rhumatologist and I am taking Celebrex, Savella, PLaquenil, and Clonazepam in addition to other meds I take.My blood work doesn't show anything and there apparently are no real tests to confirm. So I continued to be denied short term or long term disability throught my employers disability plan. So I have no income coming in. The doctors tell me in person I have this and treat me for it but when the disability papers come to them, they state things as being very subjective. There don't seem to be any specialist in my area on this. I am in Richmond, Va. I just got another call today that they are denying me because of it being "subjective". They may let me have unpaid leave under FMLA. The stress of it all is making the fibromyagia worse. Does anybody have anything that worked for them to get a disability company to understand this disease? I am at my wits end. Thanks so much!

I would like to inform you that doctors names this fibromyagia illness as they did not know how to get to the root of the problem and they do not know what to do about it. It is very simple as it is dislocated and pinched nerves all over your body. I know as I have been a Healer for 14+ years and all those nerves must be reset soonest as it may get worse. I knew of a woman who had this suppose fibromyagia decease and she went for treatments and live a normal life. You should do the same.

Good Luck
