Kim--I had a back injury at work--tried to get my ssd---then was mistreated for Lyme for 3 years---still fought--no luck. The minute I found out that I had Fibro it went right through. There are 18 pressure or pain points. If you have 11 or more of these you qualify for ssd in the state of Missouri. But things could be a lot different in your state. Don't give up--find the right neurologist. I went up in front of 2 different judges, and was ready to give up--but don't, Again-DON'T GIVE UP !!! Best of Luck to you!!!
