Dear GBS Friends,
I did not mean to downplay Bill’s GBS story on Discovery Health’s “Mystery Diagnosis.” I am very excited about the show and I’m really looking forward to watching it, because I know it’s something I can completely understand and relate with.
[QUOTE]Hopefully it will be good exposure for GBS and will teach people about some aspects of the GBS “experience”![/QUOTE] I totally agree with Bill.
Regards to all.
I remember that it was Jethro who was in touch with the show, but then they weren’t sure that they would be picked up for another season? Another problem is that although GBS is somewhat rare, with a normal case of acute GBS (rapid paralysis, also somewhat rapid recovery), most doctors would figure this one out too easily. Usually their format is for the dx to take most of the hour, like some kind of poisoning that is rare. On House GBS is often mentioned when someone comes in paralyzed, but soon ruled out. But it would be great if they did do a story on it.
