This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare condition in which your immune system attacks your nerves, leading to muscle weakness and even paralysis.
The exact cause of Guillain-Barré is unknown, but it often occurs after a viral or bacterial infection.
normal MRI scan of hte spine and lumbar puncture and normal nerve conduction studies doesn't rule out viral caused guillain barre syndrome.
her sleeping more now is consistent with a viral infection causing more fatigue.
I'm sure they have done testing to check for mononucleosis viral infection
there are many viral infections which are not tested for
I'm sure she will get better
let me know if you have questions.
not all viral infections cause enlarged lymph nodes or sore throat.
for many, it is very normal to have extreme weakness after anesthesia to put you to sleep.
it can take hours and sometimes days to recover from anesthesia
you don't have to worry about that
if she recovered from anesthesia
and is not having these constant pins and needle sensations in her legs and feet, she should have recovered fine from a potential viral infection
hopefully it doesn't happen again
