It sounds as if your doing quite well, I got GBS in aug of 08 an I have limited use of my hands an tingling in my hands an feet, I still can’t raise my fingers up an my shoulders don’t have the range of motion they use to have.
It always feel like my skin is on my body to tight even though it is quite saggy.
As far as pain I could take narcotics but I do that rarely.
They say you get the greatest amount of recovery in the 1st year an after that things move along at a less rapid rate.
But every case is differnt.
P_lease keep posting an let us all know how your doing
