Disability for GBS

“I was wondering If anyone has ever tried to recieve their disability for having GBS?”

My GBS started on 13 March 2004. I went to a rehab hospital for the entire month of April. I had an appointment with Social Security on 4 June. I didn’t use a lawyer just answered the questions they asked and listed all the doctors who cared for me since the onset of GBS. In August I received a letter saying they needed more information on my job history. The next letter I got from them in September said I had bee approved and my checks would start in October. I’ve received a check every month since. So yes you should try and don’t give up. Many GBS’ers had to get a lawyer I was very lucky.
