Reply To: GBS diagnosis uncertain ? Help please

August 8, 2016 at 7:19 am

I had what was believed to be a mild case of GBS 2 years ago. I had some cranial nerve involvement too-difficulty turning my eye, double vision, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, balance issues. I have been helped tremendously by a physical therapist who specializes in vestibular and balance disorders. He has worked with me and given me exercises to help my vision and balance improve. The double vision can have to do with how the image you see is hitting in the eye and if the nerves/muscles around the eye have been damaged then it can affect this image not hitting in the right spot at the right time resulting in blurred or vision issues. It’s amazing at how this can improve with someone who knows how to work on it. Maybe you can check around for a specialist in this. My PT says that lots of problems can cause this kind of trouble so symptoms might improve even if the cause is not GBS. I thought I would have to live with this forever and he says that he fixes problems like this all the time.
