Roundup: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is unique in that it can be very difficult to diagnose, can be caused by more than one medical reason, and can often be hard to treat. Above all, CFS sufferers are often debilitated by their condition so much so that they are unable to work.

At Share Lawyers, we understand how a complex condition like CFS may make your insurance claim more complicated. If you are suffering from CFS, you have every right to the long term disability benefits you deserve.

Here is a round up of past blog posts which all pertain to CFS, whether it be acknowledging this syndrome as disability, experiencing CFS as an invisible disability, or applying for benefits while trying to find your way to a diagnosis.
