Hi, I have some form of neuropathy. I had a flu two months ago and I have to admit that I probably didn't stay in bed long enough and now it feels like if the flu never went away. My body hurts all the time, mostly it is muscle pain all over the body. My feet and my hands have some altered sensations - numbness and also feeling like if something is crawling around my ankles (like some ants or something). My feet go into spasms from time to time... I was in hospital for tests, I had MRI and spinal tap (lumbar puncture). I am waiting for the results. At the moment doctors think it is Guillain–Barré syndrome, but it needs to be confirmed by the results. I am extremely weak. Two months ago I was quite a fit girl. Today I tried to do squats and all I could manage was 10 squats! My knees were trembling, my thighs felt like if something was stabbing them and I was completely breathless. After ten I sort of collapsed on the floor and it took a while before I could move. Pathetic!!!! My skating went quite downhill. There is not really much I can do at the moment. Field moves are much easier for me now than jumping and spinning, but even for them I feel that it would help if I was stronger. Does anyone here have ever had anything similar? Any suggestion how to beat it? It would be very helpful to know whether I should be trying to build up the muscless or if by strenght exercising I may be making it worse... does the body needs me trying to save the energy so that it can use it to repair itself, or is the exercising going to prevent even more muscle wasting? Doing squats and sit up means pushing myself quite a lot, so I am not sure if I am helping it or harming it. I can't be sitting here and hoping that it will repair 'itself', but at the same time I am not sure myself how to repair it. How can one repair nerve damage? Thank you for any advice. At the moment I am willing to try anything.
