Thanks for the reassurance!

Since I’m new to all of this I really appreciate the reassurance. I do not know what to expect or what I should feel like. I went to the neurologist today and he thought I was doing fine, and the pain is fairly typical. He did a blood test because my muscle enzymes have been running high. Hope the number is lower. Anyway, thank you all for the information.:)

About 2 years ago I had another life threatening occurance. I had to have brain surgery to remove an acoustic neuroma. It left me dizzy, deaf in one ear, and I have some facial paralysis now. Additionally, I had a central nevous system leak (brain fluid running out my nose). My equalibrium is not good so I have had to give up on some of my activities. Now I have to recover all over again with this GBS deal. I’m really not complaining as I am just glad to be here and able to work and function fairly well – that’s the real silver lining! I just hope I can get through the next few years illness free.
