Reply To: Muscle spasms/tension decades after GBS

February 27, 2024 at 3:20 pm

I had gbs 18yrs ago. Wasn’t ventilated, no treatment because I was told it was anxiety. It was not.

I still have out of the blue weakness in my legs and sometimes arms. And, I often have muscle spasms in legs and lower back. The muscles will also start burning as if I overdid a workout. The only thing that’s worked for me is Cyclobenzaprine, warm Epsom Salt baths or a good magnesium supplement. These don’t work to relieve 100% of the problems, but helps keep it at a tolerable level. Since it’s been so long, I don’t think I’ll ever not have these residual issues.
