i cant run i have constant nerve pain and my legs are weak very frequently but also i had a severe case of gbs
My sister in law is still dealing with nerve pain she had gbs last year in september she is barely recovering. She is trying to work out but when she does her legs are very wobbly after and has difficuly standing. She almost didn't make it the gbs was starting from the feet up to her head it stopped about the head. I know a doc of my husband's said he had a patient that could only blink to say yes or no the rest of his body was dead. Gbs is a very serious disease and we were told it could effect her for a lifetime. Try before you go running taking one of your pain medication's that way the pain isn't as severe. Hope this helped you.
It is now 2017. Wondering how you are doing? I was hospitalized in Jan 2010. Spent 9 months on ICU on a respirator. I was totally paralyzed , could not even blink, upon admission. I experienced unbearable pain and although could not communicate, I was aware of all that was happening. It was hell! Today, I use a power chair, wear AFO's for foot drop, can step short distances with a walker and have claw hands. (fingers clenched). I have many residual effects, mostly in the former of flu like symptoms, and the worst being the overall burning nerve pain. I have been told GBS is very rare and EVERYONE has Complete recovery lol. Six people were in ICU with me with GBS. Mine is reported as a result from the flu shot. Regardless of what the source, I just hope there will be more research into this horrific life changing and life threatening disease and that more people become aware that it even exists!!! Caring thoughts to all GBS survivors. I really DO know how you feel!!
