Reply To: I was GBS patient and now left with small weakness on my leg

I just got out of the hospital 3 weeks ago with GBS. Had no idea what was wrong with me until they did a spinal tap. I had 5 days of IVIG in the hospital. Had bad headaches and since I’ve been home I’m still getting the headaches, vomiting that just comes!

I’m still in shock at what I have and trying to deal with it. I’ve been doing lots of reading on it, then physio gave me this site to go to and speak with others. I can walk with a walker but very weak and still have pins and needles feeling in my body.

My biggest question, is what are the side effects of IVIG and how long can the side effects last for?
