Reply To: residuals for over 19 years constantly. Left leg is getting worse

Hi: I am 14 years post GBS and had extensive nerve damage which led to many residuals which have never left. Still need a wheelchair but I can walk for short periods pretty well. I have been able to get rid of almost all of my neuropathy using marijuana and alpha lipoic. Alpha lipoic has been wonderful in eliminating the neuropathy the pot did not. Now I almost never have neuropathy. I still have a lot of leg pain which pot helps with but I have to be very careful about how much I walk or do or the pain can get out of control. Before my pain specialist recommended pot I was on four kinds of pain meds and was a zombie most of the day. With pot I am not on any pain meds. So I would recommend alpha lipoic and pot. You pay a terrible price using opoids even though they work. I know pot is not for everyone but worth looking at. Good luck and, no, you are not alone. I know there are many of us dealing with residuals every day.
