Disability Insurance Law Group Overturns Cigna's Denial of Disability Benefits in Time for Claimant with Fibromyalgia to Save her Home

Our client, Ms. W, enjoyed a long and successful career as an office manager for a mid-size company. Unfortunately, shortly after receiving a promotion, she began to experience unusual and troubling symptoms such as extreme fatigue, severe pain in her joints, fogginess and confusion, and severe headaches. Originally, she dismissed her symptoms as being run down, a lack of sufficient sleep, and stress. However, overtime, her symptoms progressed and began to significantly interfere with her home and work life. She started missing work due to her fatigue and chronic pain, something she rarely did. She had difficulty concentrating at work, forgot coworker's names and appointments, and lost her train of thought while reading or conducting meetings. She was always exhausted. There were days that she could not get out of her bed and the pain was so severe that it hurt to grip anything, making it difficult to button her shirt, comb her hair, or cook a meal. She often could not walk her dog and had to have a friend come by to help her. Ms. W.'s physicians ran multiple tests, but a diagnosis eluded them. Ultimately, she went to a rheumatologist and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, through the exclusion of other conditions and positive findings on a tender point examination.
