In August 1995, at age 35, I was hospitalized for an unknown neurapathy. The syptoms were very similar to GuilleBarre but that was eventually ruled out. I began to lose strenth in my legs and the weakness worked its way up to my upper body over a 2 month period. High doses of steriods were given to stop the problem. My chart read that I had Lupus. the lupus was attacking my peripheral nerves that stimulate my muscles. The prognosis was that the nerves would eventually regenerate. Its now 5 years and my legs are still very weak. i use a wheelchair and walker and rely on my arms to pull myself where i have to go. i have been in physical therapy for the last 5 years. Has anyone heard of anything similar? I am on numerous medicines to control the LUPUS. I have been told that my case is extremely rare (1 in 10 in the last 20 years). I appreciate your feedback.
