      I had GBS ten years ago when I was in college. I’ve had minor issues since then, like a little twitching and weakness, but lately I’ve been feeling rather strange. Yesterday my hand was shaking as if I had Parkinson’s, without the numbness I had in my fingers with GBS. I was “shocked” as a joke by a co-worker, but didn’t feel anything. And today, I was “confused” for about 30 mins, as if I was having a stroke. I remember what it was like to be 17, away from home, and trying to explain that I couldn’t pull myself out of the bathtub. Couldn’t run to save my life. My hands and feet were asleep for 8 months, could this be happening again!?:confused: :confused: :confused:

      I’m not a doctor, but the best advice I can give you is to make an appointment with a neurologist because your symptons sound neurological. You might also want to check out

      Good luck to you!

      Hi Nikki,

      I wouldn’t freak, but you should see you primary care doc and then get referred to your Neuro. Could be alot of reasons your feeling residuals, can’t hurt to get it checked out to be safe. Good luck with everything.
