Reply To: STOMACH RELATED GBS ISSUES
Hi I was also wondering the same thing. I was diagnosed with demilinating neuropathy about 12 months ago and for the last 4 months or so had intermittent problems with jaw and neck pain along with mild pressure in the chest. This week I have been hospitalized twice with severe chest pains I thought I was having a heart attack. Luckily my heart is fine but they believe I have spasm of the esophagus. I have to have a barium swallow test. Apparently this is caused due to problems with nerves in the esophagus causing constriction. This in turn causes very painful digestion issues. I too am curious as to whether anyone with cidp/gbs has this problem. I got a bit suspicious when I read about the connection with nerves. Prior to all this starting pain was predominantly linked to arms and legs. Now all my most troublesome issues are digestive and cranial related. are your stomac in anyway similar to this. Getting a bit frustrated with feeling sick and tired and seem to be taking so many tablets I must rattle when I walk.
Are your issues in anyway similar?
