Nationwide Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Disability Insurance Claims Attorneys

Nationwide Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

At Disability Insurance Law Group, our Fort Lauderdale disability claims lawyers know that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a serious, long-term illness that affects many of the body’s systems. The disease is characterized by profound fatigue, sleep abnormalities, pain, and other symptoms that are made worse by exertion.

Also called Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), the condition can often leave sufferers from doing their usual activities — and in some cases make it difficult to get out of bed.

According to an Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, an estimated 836,000 to 2.5 million Americans suffer from ME/CFS. However, most of them have not been diagnosed.

If you have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, our Broward County disability insurance attorneys can help you file a compelling claim with your private or employer-provided insurance company, so you can focus on your wellness.

Our Florida disability insurance claims attorneys have over 50 years of combined experience pursuing all types of insurance coverages and corporations for the benefits policyholders across the nation deserve. Contact us now to learn more.

When is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Considered an Impairment?

Our nationwide Chronic Fatigue Syndrome disability attorneys know that these conditions can lead to a greatly lowered ability to do activities that were usual before the illness.

This drop in activity level occurs along with fatigue and must last six months or longer.

People with ME/CFS have fatigue that is vastly different from just being tired, and:

  • Can be severe.
  • Is not a result of unusually difficult activity.
  • Is not relieved by sleep or rest.
  • Was not a problem before becoming ill.

Other ME/CFS symptoms may include, but are not limited to:

  • Allergies and sensitivities to foods, odors, chemicals, light, or noise.
  • Chills and night sweats.
  • Difficulty thinking.
  • Digestive issues, like irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Feeling dizzy.
  • Headaches.
  • Irregular heartbeat.
  • Joint pain without swelling or redness.
  • Memory problems.
  • Muscle pain and aches.
  • Muscle weakness.
  • Problems sleeping.
  • Severe tiredness.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Sore throat.
  • Tender lymph nodes in the neck or armpits.

It may take days, weeks, or longer to recover, leaving patients housebound or even completely bedbound during severe episodes.

If you have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that is keeping you from working and enjoying the quality of life you deserve, contact our nationwide disability insurance attorneys today to discuss your condition during a free consultation.

How is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Diagnosed?

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome may appear like many other illnesses and there is no test to confirm its existence, making it difficult to diagnose. Since the symptoms may come and go, or there may be changes in how bad they are over time, it makes ME/CFS unpredictable.

When assessing a patient for potential ME/CFS, the physician or healthcare provider will:

  • Ask about the medical history of the patient and their family.
  • Do a thorough physical and mental status examination.
  • Order blood, urine, or other tests.

A doctor should be able to distinguish ME/CFS from other illnesses by doing a thorough medical exam. There is no cure or approved treatment for myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). However, some symptoms can be treated or managed.

Treating these symptoms might provide relief for some patients with ME/CFS but not others.
