Our client worked hard to achieve success as a managing director and senior relationship manager for Wells Fargo in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was looking forward to continuing his hard work until his eventual retirement. Unfortunately, at just 55 years of age, our client was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic migraines. These diagnoses and their symptoms made it impossible for our client to work. As a result, he contacted Dabdoub Law Firm for help filing a long-term disability claim.
Explaining the Impact of Fibromyalgia
Many of our client’s medical conditions are invisible to the untrained eye. Our client’s medical conditions included:
- Chronic migraines
- Vestibular dysfunction
- Chronic pain
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Blurry vision
- Hypertensive retinopathy
- Multiple defects of the retina
- Obstructive sleep apnea
- Epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow)
While not always obvious to those around him, the symptoms of these conditions made it impossible for our client to get through a workday. Additionally, our client’s treating physicians recognized and documented the disabling nature of his conditions. Our client’s internal medicine doctor concluded that he was unable to sit for more than 2 hours per day and could not stand for more than 1 hour a day. Our client could not lift more than 10 pounds, and he could only occasionally balance, reach, and type. Our client’s rheumatologist described the severe and debilitating symptoms of our client’s fibromyalgia, including an inability to concentrate, complete tasks, maintain balance, and maintain regular attendance.
Further, our client suffers from migraines. He experiences painful headaches and is extremely tired and mentally “foggy. Despite receiving Botox injections and other treatments, doctors agree that our client cannot reliably and consistently perform in a full-time job.
By providing Lincoln with all the required paperwork for a long-term disability claim and highlighting the most important information from our client’s doctors, Dabdoub Law Firm was able to get our client the benefits he deserved.
We hope taking the time he needs to focus on his health will help our client manage his constellation of medical conditions – this is exactly why he purchased a disability insurance policy.
