Reply To: what else is there-other than physio

Thanks for the reply! I’m back home from the pain clinic and going to the links you provided soon, but wanted to let you know the outcome of my first visit and to answer your questions.
The pain clinic doctor was aware of GBS and it’s 4 variants (news to me – he named them) but has referred me to a neurologist for Idiopathic Progress Polyneuropathy testing. I feel very good about that decision; I’ve not seen a neurologist since 2009. He has treated peripheral neuropathy patients before, but paused when I voiced for the first time that I fear another on set: the pain and numbness is ascending, just like in 2009.

I’m on gabapentin (which he increased the dosage and strength gradually over the next 12 days) for the nerve pain, and Nabumetone for my muscle pain, and baclofen for the muscle spasms in my lower back. All since 2009.

Thanks again and all the best to you & your wife!
