Reply To: GBS Paresthesias: how long do they last?

It has been 5 years for me and I had a very severe case of GBS, going from perfectly normal in the morning to a ventilator in the evening (1/2 day). I’ve had 3 EMG’s testing nerve conduction at 1, 2, and 4 years. The results show most improvement in the first year. I understand that 1 – 1.5 years is typical to get the most results. I still have some tingling / partial numbness, but it seems to keep getting incrementally better over time. It took a year before I could start to use a walker. As you say, every case is different and unique and it’s hard to draw parallels.
