MY husband was told that he has guillian-barre. He is starting to walk better but the pain is getting worse. Do anyone out there know if this is a good sign or bad. I think that the danger has passed or so I'm told. If you have experienced this or know of anyone that has please post a thread.

  • I am writing to ask you spiritcocrystal if you have gbs right now. I would also like to know when you were diagnosed. I have a son that was hosiptalized almost 2yrs ago. He spent 22 days in Texas Childrens fighting the disease, we spent most of last year taking him to theraphy 2 times a week. In May of last year he was released by the dr but now over a yr later he is having some tingling in his feet and some other stuff going on in his legs. I'm just curious if this could be apart of GBS. I am taking him on Friday to see a Neuro doctor. Please e-mail me or something so we can chat about this. Thanks alot. Tina
