      I am currently two years out and recently went through a bout of Post Traumatic Stress brought on by pushing myself too hard during a run. I am now trying to sort out what is due to anxiety verses what is caused by residuals of GBS. Does anyone else have exacerbated symptoms during anxiety or other triggers? My left side presented a little heavier than my right and is still a little worse off. Now my left arm and leg will feel heavier off and on and my left face too, not sure if anyone else has anything similar going on.

      Thanks for the insight 🙂

      I can’t speak for anyone else, or with any medical authority, just from personal experience. It’s a year and a half for me and I still have a ways to go but am much better than I was, thank god.

      What I’ve noticed is that when I do more than normal, my weakest muscles (right side for me) feel it the strongest. They may contract, cramp or hurt. Also, they feel weaker. Length of time depends on how much I overdid it. Can last a day or two, or longer, if I really pushed myself. Occasionally, the old nerve pain resurfaces, too.

      I am awed that you are able to run again. It gives me hope, thank-you! 🙂
