Bit late to the party here, but mine paid out, too.
Like you, I was a bit worried about the “continuing disability” clause - it’s relapsing remitting - Duh! That and the possibility they might challenge the diagnosis, as I hadn’t had a lumbar puncture - thought they might insist on that.
But in the event, all was fine. All they asked for was my GP records - all of them! They asked for the address of my neuro, but as far as I know, they never even contacted him, because his diagnosis was in my GP file, in black and white, in the letter he’d sent her. So I don’t think they needed to query anything, so they didn’t bother to contact him.
They either didn’t apply the continuing disability thing at all, or minimal disability was sufficient. Several months after my “attack” there were a couple of lines in the notes from my physio about weak ankle and foot drop (so slight I hadn’t been aware of either) - but looks like they must have taken that as enough. Or perhaps it was enough that I was even seeing a physio - it must have been an indication everything wasn’t perfect.
But overall, very pleased. My only criticism was they didn’t even tell me my claim had been approved, and that the money was on the way. It went into my bank while I was away on holiday in Turkey, so I didn’t even know it was there. If I’d had my card stolen, someone could have milked the lot! Not the safest process in the world, but all’s well that ends well.
