Three weeks is a long time to wait if you are experiencing increasing pain and (especially) weakness. GBS and its closely related disorder, CIDP, are considered emergencies. If your weakness is progressing, you should be prepared to go to an emergency room before you become immobilized. Do you have someone to assist you?

If you are taking strong pain meds, you must have a doctor who prescribed them. Did he (or she) diagnose a neuropathy?

If you have GBS or CIDP, earlier treatment generally leads to better recovery.
