Hello everyone,

I got diagnosed with gbs in march 2014 i spent 8month paralysed and 14 month as an inpatient. I had the ivig which give me chemical menigitus and swelling on the brain i then started to get worse so they tried me on steroids which didn't get any better but no worse. They was unable to give me ivig again so decided to have plasma exchange. I then started to get better i eventually got discharged spent 3 week at home then readmitted as i had a relapse. At this time i got diagnosed with AIPD, its like CIPD but acute. I know im unable to have flu vaccination and that but does chicken pox effect this is anyway? My little girl has started coming out in them. Hope to hear off someone soon x

      They don't actually know why i fell ill with it as i was fine before it. They haven't told me its the reason but i think it had something to do with the coil as i had it done just over a week before falling ill. The reason why i think it was that because while i was in they had realised that it was fitted incorrect so had to take it out. I first got diagnosed with the gbs but then because i had a relapse but my nerve conduction had improved a little since my last one they said it was fully cipd they've said its aipd which is acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy as cold is chronic. Hope that makes sense x

      No, i dont have gbs; had polio long ago. 

      If you have paralysis all over the body, then it cant be GBS , because GBS only affects a part of the body. 

      AIDP is not the same as GBS ?

      Gbs can effect the whole body, i first started in my feet and gradually worked up the body. I didn't get diagnosed until i was paralysed hips down. After the first ivig it then effected me fully. Gbs shows it gets treated and your nerve conduction tests improve, cipd shows that they don't improve and neither do your fluid levels. Because my NC didn't improve as much as what it should of done with the GBS but had improved it couldn't of been cipd. So then that's why my specialist from neuro hospital diagnosed me with that. I see him every month sure hed know better then us
