MF and recovery

August 21, 2006 at 6:12 am

DeAnne, I admire your persistence, something we all look for in our therapists. Unfortunately you cannot make a muscle work if the nerve supply to it is damaged as in GBS and MF variant.
Fortunately those with MF variant usually make a quicker recovery than GBS alone. Fatigue temporarily increases weakness so plenty of rest is most important.
We all look for something that speeds recovery and many here have tried all sorts of therapies. All that can be done from a medical point of view is to inhibit further deterioration. Repair to the myelin sheath takes time and our body’s own repair kit does this. DocDavid (CIDP)
