My second time too
I feel for you. I just got out of the hospital April 6, ’08 with my 2nd occurance-a little over one year after the 1st.
My first time, the pain was horrible from the waist down, and it lasted about 6-8 weeks.
This time , the pain is really bad in my left leg and right arm. It’s pretty constant in the leg, really bad in my foot, and comes and goes in my arm.
The severity of the pain was as bad last time as it is this.
As far as GBS vs. CIDP. My Neurologist told me that if if this ever happens again, he’ll do nerve biopsies and diagnose. Don’t spend your time worrying about it. Just focus on keeping as positive an attitude as you can, pray a lot, and hang in there because there’s a good chance that this pain is temporary and will subside. Lyrica works better than anything else for me.
