my neurologist told me…

that no one gets out from under this in less than 2 years. For me it was closer to 3, and I still have lingering pain/fatigue problems on occasion. My onset was 9/95. I took tegretol for pain, which is very similar to neurontin, for about 18 months. some of the many hours of sleep that first year were from GBS recovery itself, and some were from the tegretol, which improved with time. tegretol really wacked my head at first! pushing will not help. time and rest are unfortunately the best things, but these can kill a profession. almost did mine.

peace, above all else
