    I’m the same because I’m still on medication cause I had gbs I’m still taking pills I have black bags under my eyes I also have insomnia but I’ve been pushing my self to get to bed earlier I finally found a cream for my face body feet at winners called A La Madison also my toe nails started turn really white thought it was a fungus cause I looked it up on google but they say could be due to pedicures but I have not had one since I had gbs . I went to my doctor he said it’s due to age I don’t think so . I’m only 56 I’m not that old . The cream been working for me has organ oil , Shea Butter, Cocanut Cream . Also waiting on Nero again I think I have Cidp I’ve gotten some tingles again hands still twitches here there and basically always sick with some thing my Amun terrible . But been while I have been getting Charlie horses back of my Caves Some time mostly in my left hand fingers . Can’t wait been 8 months my doctor told me keeps screwing up my stuff even medications . But try that it’s working got me excellent made my skin softer plus seems I have this thing my arm like scab it won’t go away  thinking I need antibiotic cream for it . Since I had gbs I don’t seem to heal fast odd . Also for my toes I came across health tip with my toes it’s vinager water and baking soda might stink bit I’m gonna try it . Also says to soak in your feet in that few weeks I hope it works . Feel like you hun living on the edge . My skin like that when I got sick but try it out . If I can get more information go to readers digest love it there’s always stuff on every heath issue really helps to read get site on this kind stuff . Hugs hope you feel better
