Thanks for that link, Jack. But the full article is behind a paywall. Does it report anything which would support a connection to your jerky movements?

I notice that it pertains only to GBS. It is generally known, I thought, that steroids are not useful for GBS. I am classified as CIDP, for which they are commonly administered. In the early stages of a neuropathy, it may not be clear which of these is the correct diagnosis. I didn’t start prednisone until my diagnosis was settled as CIDP. It may be that your neurologist was using it to help make the diagnosis. Even so, I doubt it did you any lasting harm. There is often some uncertainty in how best to treat these disorders.
