Reply To: Was I misdiagnosed? Here's my strange GBS story.
It can be difficult to tell whether GBS is advancing or declining. I was given a five-day course of IvIg in hospital, then sent to rehab. Within a week I was back in hospital because I was getting weaker. After another loading dose, I went to rehab again. I was back in hospital in a week, where I remained for a few weeks before finally starting recovery. This was nobody’s fault — it’s just the nature of the disorder. Sometimes it progresses slowly, sometimes not.
