Not getting much info from my doctor

Thanks for your response. My case was milder than yours as i was never on a respirator or paralyzed, just severely weakened. I came down with GBS Memorial Day weekend ’08, was in the hospital for a week and rehab for 2 weeks. I am walking unassisted but have very little feeling from the balls of both feet to my toes, a marked weakness in my right shoulder, and numbness in my fingertips. One of my doctors said there should be no problem with the flu shot, but I became concerned when I saw the “have you ever had GBS?”question.
