I just joined here and would be happy to have any input. I first lost feeling in my feet medially about 14 years ago and blamed it on a stairstepper and poorly designed feet.
Then in 2007, I got profound pain and numbness in both feet and had nerve release for presumed tarsal tunnel entrapment which actually made things worse. Went through prolonged disability with many ineffective shots and treatments ending in acupuncture over more than two years.
I stabilized till 2011 when I had a minor flare and back to baseline in about a week.
Early this January I had a flu like illness followed by profound weakness and numbness up to my pelvis and was admitted with presumed Guillan Barre and got a four day IVIG infusion. I improved markedly over the next six weeks beyond the point where I had not been for almost 14 years.
Unfortunately symptoms again returned and three weeks ago I had a 2 day outpatient infusion of IVIG
Now I am going to get weekend 2 day home infusions every 4 weeks.
Anyone have any comments regarding the above?
I am a general internist and would be happy to join in various discussions. I am new to the site
