Thanks for accepting me into the group. I was diagnosed on January 12 , 2015. I had good intervention and responded well to the infusions of imunoglobin. I was almost totally paralyzed from the neck down but have gotten back my mobility. My feet are still numb but feel like they are gradually "thawing out". At this point it feels like there is always sand in my shoes, and I have muscle spasms in my feet at night. Other residual effects include loss of strength in my legs and hip flexors. While I have good stamina and have resumed many of my former activities, my reflexes are definitely slower.
I wonder if anyone has taken a flu shot after recovering from GBS without any problems. I would really like to keep on getting them but of course was advised against it so didn't get one for this season. I have yet to run across anyone else in person who has had GBS in my little city, so it is nice to be able to ask questions and read about other peoples experiences.
