Reply To: Leg Pain with GBS

My right arm is so numb and painful and is exacerbated with minimal activity, even activity not involving my right arm. No meds help. After trying many things I found if I ice my right tricep it greatly helps with the arm and hand pain/numbness. Sometimes I have to ice it twice a day, sometimes 8x/day. My opinion is if the medication is not helping then wean yourself off of them. If you are on heavy doses of narcotics do not try to wean yourself off of them as it could be dangerous, get medical help.
