Q.

Fibromyalgia & disability

My pain has gone undiagnosed for over 6 months. Rheumatologist now suspects Fibromyalgia. I am a sales rep that is on the road often and the remainder of the time on my PC. My ankles and wrist hurt the most. Sometimes I have to stop in the middle of driving and other times cannot type due to the pain. I have disability cover. Will I be able to claim for this in SA? I have read that it is very hard to prove this. But the pain is making it unbearable. I am having trouble doing simple things like straighten my hair and bath, all my bones pain. I have been checked for cancers, immune disorders and arthritis. All clear. But i don't know what else to do now and it is affecting my lifestyle and no proper diagnosis given yet as I am currently just taking vitamins and then will go in for another exam in 3 months.
