I came down with GBS Nov 20, 2019 and am practically back to normal – I am 74. I Spent 5 weeks in the hospital of which 3 in the ICU. I had incredible lower back pain 24/7 – nothing helped until after receiving the treatments. Initially had 5 treatments of IV/IG and subsequently 5 treatments of plasma exchange. Jan through end Nov 2020 continued with IV/IG from 3 treatments every 4 weeks to 2 and then one. Treatment was discontinued end Nov 2020 and have had no relapses. Only thing was fatigue especially my thighs. I’ve had may second shot of the Pfizer vaccine with minor shoulder muscle pain but so far all fine. I have also gone back to swimming 3 to 4 times a week this month to try and get back to physical level pre-GBS.
I think it is extremely important to stay physically active for both body and mind.
