I was diagnosed with GBS on May 2013. During my stay in the hospital, skilled nursing and then a Rehab hospital, I had some major heat issues. Being paralyzed from the neck down, the heat was unbearable. I would sleep with an ice pack under my neck, a fan blowing at me, the thermostat set in the 60s and even had ice baths just to cool me down. The heat eventually subsided about 5 months out.
I have since regained about 75% of body function. I’m able to walk around, do things by myself and eventually went back to work. But I noticed one thing, I get tired real quick, like within half an hour into what I was doing. My body then overheats and I start to sweat, and sweat, and sweat, up until a half hour after I stopped what I was doing. Only way to cool me down is to take a cold shower. And then I’m shot. Too tired to do anything.
Anyone else experience the same?
