Tingling & Numbness

August 23, 2006 at 6:37 pm


I’ve had GBS for 3 years now, and even though I’ve had a great deal of nerve regeneration (re-growth) in my legs and feet, I still have the numbness and tingling daily in my feet. Some days are better than others. But the miracle of it is that I have graduated from the wheelchair, to a walker, to a cane, to nothing at all! It just takes an incredible amount of patience to get better. I don’t know if it (the tingling, etc.) will ever go away completely, but hopefully it will get to a manageable level so you can function. I know when I overdo it, I pay for it dearly. So stay as rested as possible, stay optimistic, and learn to accommodate the GBS in your life.

Good luck and be well,
