The month after I left the hospital I would feels the tingling more pronounced when I did too much. It would go all the way up to my chest. One of those times my wife was there and asked why I was shaking all over. I said that it meant I had to lay down and spend the rest of the afternoon on the couch.
The ultimate disease for the couch potato in me!:D
Hello Tom. My Gbs onset was oct 13 07 and the numbness in my chest and sides went away about january of 08. I am back to work now. My numbness is only under my toes and the ball of my feet.I usually have bad cramps in my feet at the end of the day, take norco couple of hours before bed. Its been 7 months now. I am 53 soon be 54 years young. I am sure age plays apart of your progress. I was numb from the shouldes down. My freind had it when he was 40 and he made a complete recovery in 4 months. My nuro told me 6 to 12 months. My feet are better now then 2 months ago.I had 5 days of ivig infused in 3 days. That was my treatment from U of M hospital.Also was hospitalized for 5 weeks
Thank you all again for providing such important information and being so supportive. 🙂 I did tell my uncle that he is recovering faster than most people (he’s 58 and was in ICU for 2 1/2 weeks, and now he’s walking after a month.)
I will pass the information you provided to him, so I will tell him to be patient. Yesterday, my aunt called me about getting the handicapped card for her car. I guess she is going to take him around since many people haven’t seen him for over a month. I bet that he wants to go back to his business just to see everything. Perhaps I’ll be able to see him this weekend when I work there~
I will keep you all posted on how he’s doing. Thanks again. 🙂
I don’t know what causes it….but after 11 months my hands and feet still do.
My right foot feels like I have bunched up socks…A voluteer at my rehab hospital had GBS 6 years ago and still has tingling…..I can deal with that … I can now walk, talk and do without a diaper….Life IS good.
