Reply To: Newly diagnosed GBS and terrified

Its funny I was just looking for anyone else with that band of tightness around my lower rib cage.
I’m 9 months into GBS and its my most scary symptom at the moment. The extremity nerve pain has subsided enough in feet and hands to not be my primary issue. I mentioned the band to my nerve doc and my primary care. No response. I’m seeing my nerve doc again in a few weeks and if he ignores the subject again, I will be getting a new doctor. I have already fired one nerve doc. I also experience extreme stomach muscle tightness along with the band feeling. I almost double up with pain when this happens. Good luck you are not the only one. (some other people on this site mention it, but from 5 years ago or something)
