Had GBS at 12 years old. No IV treatments available. 8 yrs PT & OT. Residual weakness in ankles and calfs. Profound effect on walking, balance on uneven surfaces and stability was never the same again. Could not ever run again or stand on tip toes. Over compenstated stronger muscles for weaker ones. All in all I overcame my physical limitations by working 35 years, borne 2 babies, bike riding, bowling and walking, even if it is with defined limp. I would love to connect with persons whom also had GBS at time when PT and OT were the only options. I am having a lot of problems with my knees now and use cane and in a lot of pain from it.
