Do You Need Help Finding Financial Relief?
Chronic fatigue syndrome has taken a big toll on your life.
You find it hard to function from day to day. Sometimes you don’t feel like getting out of bed because you’re so tired. No matter how much you rest or take time off from work, you just can never seem to recover.
Then you had to leave work permanently, so unpaid bills are piling up.
Social Security Disability benefits can help you get through this.
Disability income can change your life for the better. But most first-time applicants are denied.
Once you’re denied, what can you do?

How to Qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits
To qualify for Social Security Disability benefits for chronic fatigue syndrome, you have to show that you’re experiencing symptoms like these:
- Bladder issues
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Issues with your vision
- Heart palpitations
- Difficulty concentrating on tasks
- Symptoms that worsen after you exert mental or physical effort
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Joint pain
- Poor immune function
- Symptoms that worsen if you’re sitting in an upright posture
You can’t just say that you have these medical problems, however. You will need to prove to the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you’re experiencing severe versions of these symptoms in order to qualify for benefits.
Proof of your chronic fatigue syndrome could include:
- Results from blood tests
- Doctors’ reports about your condition
- Imaging results, like MRIs
- Mental examination reports
- Reports from physical exams
If you missed any of these documents or didn’t provide enough proof, the South Bend Disability lawyers at Rosenfeld & Morgan can collect more important records for you and organize your evidence.
They will also help you fill out confusing forms. Having an experienced disability attorney makes the appeals process much easier.

Starting Your Appeal for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Benefits
Remember: You’ll qualify for Social Security Disability benefits for your chronic fatigue syndrome if:
- Your condition had a clear starting time or is new
- Rest does not make it go away
- Your fatigue doesn’t stem from overexertion
- You cannot function properly in your daily life
- Your symptoms are not tied to any other psychological or medical conditions
When you applied for Social Security Disability the first time, you may have omitted some information or not provided enough proof.
It’s easy to make mistakes. The application process is notoriously difficult.
Now in your appeal, you have a chance to correct any problems that blocked you from getting benefits.
It’s been shown in government statistics that when applicants have help from a Social Security Disability attorney, they are more likely to win benefits.
And with those monthly checks coming in, you know you’ll feel more secure and stable.
Don’t wait. Once you’re denied benefits, you face a tight deadline to appeal.
