ANSWER: The Social Security Administration considers Fibromyalgia a “medically determinable impairment.” In the simplest terms, this means it is considered a health problem that limits or prevents a person from being able to work and can be proven through medical tests. If Fibromyalgia causes your mother to be unable to work full-time, then there is a possibility she can qualify.
