Legal Question

Asked on: 1/16/12, 12:23 am

my husband has suffered extreme dizzy spells and falls several times a day. he has been dr ordered not to drive or work since early december. we have been sent to 4 different neurologists and seen our family dr several times. he has had many tests from each neurologist but is still undiagnosed. i have been denied fmla 3 times, saying we have not proven this is serious illness. i have provided my boss all of our medical records and submitted fmla forms 4 times. twice the drs have failed to answer all questions, some are very hard to answer without diagnosis, and once the dr marked the incorrect box, answering a question incorrectly. i am waiting to see if approved from the 4th set of questions sent to his dr. do wehave any legal recourse if i am denied the 4th time? i am requesting intermittant leave only as i cannot afford to go without a paycheck, but his health has detriorated enough that he truly should not be left alone. this is a very frustrating and scarey situation with his health and my company is causing me extreme stress in getting my leave approved.
