Welcome to the world of Post GBS

I had GBS in 1988. It mostly affected my legs and arms. Never hospitalized.

Always had minor issues like loss of sensation, numbness, and minor weakness. Nothing major. More of a nuisance.

Started to have more issues in 2007. Went through a mid-life crisis and divorce. A lot of stressed. Had increased issues with arms and hand. In 2008 I started to have a foot drop on the right side.

Still trying to figure out if this is Post GBS issues that are coming to light now or something else.

The long-term affects and damage from GBS is not well understood. There are many of us on the Forum that seem to be hitting the wall with residuals between 15-25 years out.

Have you been doing a lot of things?
Overdoing it?
Under a lot of stress?
Not getting enough sleep?

All these things will cause and increase in residuals.

I hope this helps and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Take Care,

Learning to live Post GBS or something else.
