      Does anyone know whether or not we should have a TB Test? I haven’t had one since before I had GBS. My office is merging with a hospital & now we’re being required to have another test. I’m not currently seeing a neuro and couldn’t remember from 7 yrs ago. I know that vaccines are not recommended. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

      Annual TB tests are fine. The only other option would be a chest x-ray, if you have had positive TB tests before.

      A TB test is not an injection, it is just sub-dermal (below the skin) to see if there is a localized (not systemic) reaction.
