So frustrating!

Thanks, everybody…
This is so frustrating…after numerous doc’s and finally got to the neuro who basically laughed at my suggestion of GBS. I can believe that this syndrome is so misunderstood by the medical community. I had all the symptoms of GBS directly following a Dtap shot (tetanus vaccine) and was in excellent health before this event! And still, even though no one wants to label it GBS, they can’t think what else it could be!!!! As soon as my MRI is done, I will go back and ask neuro to do that test. Barring the MRI, they have done extensive bloodwork and other tests to rule out other possibilities. I wonder why wouldn’t he even consider doing the EMG test first – can he do this test right in his office?
