Finally, Spanish courts have done something for fibromyalgia suffers, Spanish courts have considered fibromyalgia a state of Permanent Disability. I hope other countries like USA and UK also adopt such thing.
The ruling was made on the basis of a woman (an operator in a chemical company) suffering from major anxiety, cervical pain and degenerative processes without root involvement were confirmed to be permanently disabled due to fibromyalgia. The magistrate assessed that “the towage of permanent powerlessness must be made primarily equal to the functional limitations resulting from the sufferings of the worker”.
The magistrate says that the inability to be understood by the loss of corporeal or functional capacities that diminishes or nullifies the labor topics should be recognized. Not only it should be recognized when a person lacks physical worthiness to perform any labor work, it should moreover be recognized when the worker retains the skills to do any work with minimum efficiency, plane in simple procedures.
In the specimen of the woman, the magistrate ruled that the condition “prevents the proper performance of all kinds of work, including nature sedentary and light tasks which do not require particularly intense physical efforts. At the present time is unauthentic by one major disorder of a serious nature, that occurs with unbearable intensity as to nullify their labor ability, to which are widow other degenerative ailments.” The woman was suffering from major peepers with no psychotic symptoms, cervical pain as well as degenerative processes without root involvement, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. The magistrate ruled that she is disabled, and dismissed the request of the Instituto Nacional de la Seguridad Social (INSS) versus a sentence once handed lanugo the Labour Magistrate 1 of Girona in 2013.
There was a similar condition of a worker suffering from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome who had the same outcome. The man was suffering from level III fibromyalgia and CFS, withal with chronic depressive disorder, summery cognitive impairment
The condition can rationalization intense pain that can significantly undermine the productive topics of a person in terms on performance, topics and efficiency. Without the fact that lightweight work is sufficient for the debilitating condition, the condition should be considered disabling. The courts say that this stratum of powerlessness shouldn’t only be recognized when the person lacks any topics for labor work, but moreover when they aren’t misogynist to perform any work with minimum efficiency, no matter how simple it is.

It needs to be taken seriously worldwide. It is a real dibilating illness. It is a disability. I am fed up being told it was in my head. My God I wish it was because I would be able to do the small things I need to do and can’t.,like brush my hair, brush my teeth etc.
