    I was diagnosed with gbs on march 2018 and in the hospital for 3 months and then sent to a rehab center for pt. My therapist told me to apply for ssi since he said that he didn’t think I would ever be able to work again. So I applied and it went right through praise God. They called and had a phone interview with my therapist before they put it through. I am 61 years old and didn’t think that i would be retiring so soon. So I had applied and got the news that it had gone through with in 2 months .

    I was diagnosed with gbs on March 2018 and I am still trying to recover. I still have a lot of fatigue and pain. I take 600 mg of gabapentin twice a day and 800 mg of gabapentin twice a day along with 200 mg of carbamazepine 4 times a day with 30 mg of duloxetine once a day to control my pain. As long as I do not miss any doses it usually will keep my pain manageable.

    Some times I will just get up and try to walk through the pain.My therapist would tell me to use it or lose it. I found out I just also have to listen to my body and not get over tried, because that would just make all my symptoms worst.
