My encounter with Guillain Barre Syndrome (NOT “my GBS”!!!): On a Wednesday in December, 1996 I felt a bit off then spent the rest of the week in meetings with a business associate who had the flu.
In a period of 10 days I would go from running 50 miles/week to not being able to stand for 50 seconds.
GBS is diagnosed by exception (doctors rule other conditions out) so it took 30 days and various specialist visits before I was seated in the office of the Chief Neurologist of a local hospital.
The most unprofessional thing you’ll ever see: The Chief Neurologist told me: they thought I had something rare and (précising it with the statement: I realize how unprofessional this must look) literally read the checklist for a strange-sounding disease from a medical book. He told me what I had affects about 1 in 100,000 people and the only thing he could predict was that it is unpredictable.
First do no harm: About a week later I was rushed to hospital.
Hard as it may be to imagine, the adverse drug reaction was worse than the GBS onset.
If there was an upside to this experience it made me much more aware of “what I was putting into my body”.
Post Mortem: Overall I feel nothing but gratitude for the team of doctors, nurses and technicians who intervened.
The upside is this put me on a journey I was meant to take – one which made me realize just how tied my therapist’s hands were in TRULY helping me by the absence of her access to cellular-health technologies particularly high-powered Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy.
What’s it going to take to change this for others?
