How hard is it to get disability with fibromyalgia? Any advice or personal stories?

I've had fibromayalgia for 6 years and until the last year has been under control. My doctor suggested i tried filing for disability.

    Don't give up on trying to find pain control. It is possible, but the medical "establishment" really doesn't offer real solutions to dealing with fibromyalgia. Before you file for disability, see what else you can do to manage your pain–if you can control your pain, everything else will be a lot better as well, and you very well may be able to work. I've found relief by taking 800 mg. of Aleve and a 1000-mg. flaxseed oil capsule every night at bedtime, and I take Arnica, a homeopathic herb, as needed for flareups. Check out the links below. I hope the information helps. Please let us know how you find relief.
