Reply To: Residuals Question

November 4, 2013 at 4:37 pm

<quote>For those that have residuals that tend to “come and go”, how often does this happen for everyone? When they do flare up, how long do they stay? Is there anything you do to minimize the impact? </quote>

For me – when I get tired. Duration is usually until I catch up on needed rest. Often times, I don’t even realize that I’m that much in need of rest but the residual symptoms remind me.

I find that the better I take care of myself, the less often I get flare-ups of things like dizziness, tingling, muscle tightening and pain. That includes diet, rest and mild exercise that I’m capable of.

I don’t know if this applies to others but I have read that fatigue often brings on GBS patients’ residual symptoms.
