Reply To: GBS pain

July 2, 2012 at 11:10 pm

My case of CIDP was similar to GBS in its initial stages. It was extremely painful in its early stages and I was taking oxycodone for a time in the hospital. After recovery began, the pain became tolerable and I dropped all pain medication. A year and a half out of the hospital, my feet still hurt constantly — more so when I walk on them for an extended time. My neurologist cannot say whether they will ever return to normal. A few months is not a long time for recovery from these diseases.
