Thanks for the responses. No, I’m on prednisone, 40mg for at least the next 2 months. Haven’t had IVIG since my hospital stay in early January.

This disease is so weird. My recovery, while in the long run seems to trend incrementally towards the positive, each and every day, my legs, feet, and hands present me with different sensations.

At least it is a “sensation” and not numbness, but right now it seems to be a phase of painfulness. Additionally some days I seem to have a lot of muscle strength in my legs and other days they seem weaker. At least I’ve seem to have gotten over the effects of the bug.

Additionally, I stronger suspect that some of the “imbalance” or weakness and even sensations I feel are tied into the prednisone. Somedays its effects seem a bit overwhelming to me.
