Hey kitze20. Hope you are making progress. I understand your frustration about switching doctors. In my opinion you definitely need a neurologist and not a GP. Most GPs will not have much experience with GBS. In previous posts you mentioned a drop foot condition, has this improved? Depending on how severe your drop foot is it may be helped by using ankle foot orthotics which are a bit cumbersome but do help with walking. If you are experiencing tingling or pain in your feet you may get some relief using TED socks (support hose). If you have questions that you aren’t getting answers for don’t hesitate to ask this forum. You’ll find more GBS knowledge here than you’ll find at a neurologist convention in Hawaii.
