Hi again. Just been doing some google searches into NP.
What l have come to realize whilst reading, is it states GBS, is one of the causes of PN, but GBS may occur along with viral infections such as Herpes Simplex. In the past few years ago l was getting cold sore maybe every 1-2 months, and had to start taking Lyasine supplements, one per day at first and now l tend to take it just one week before menstruation. Which tends to keep them away, but l still get them even when supplementing If l forget to take them at the right time, l break out in a huge massive cold sore over my mouth, once l had it over my nose, which l have never had before.
Is it possible that l may have GBS? Is it possible that the herpes virus has attacked my nerve ending over time and damaged them, or something of the sorts?
My NP came on pretty suddenly. I got the burning feet and the hands followed 2 days later. When l read all the GBS symptoms l have some but not all. Is there a test that can diagnose GBS?
I have had numb left toes on and off for years, so not sure if this sensory PN or GBS?
