Regained reflexes after GBS then lost them later

      :confused: I had GBS in May 2005 and was back at work in 2 months with full function but severe fatigue. That eventually got better as well as all my reflexes’. Fast forward to 2009 and I now have no reflexes’ in both ankles, both knees and my left elbow. Went to a specialist for the test involving needles, voltage and flopping around. He said it was not a relapse. I’m just curious….what are reflexes’ for?

      Hi Tigurr,

      I had to think about this one. Not sure what reflexes are for, but I used my friend (Google). The only links I found were for kids, but it does make it simple as my tired brain was able to get something out of it. 😀


      My reflexes are back, but aren’t 100% normal. I haven’t had them checked lately, but hopefully I still have them.

      Take care,
