This is my story... it all started one night at 6pm when I got home from work, I locked the car door and had pins and needles sensations in my fingertips. This carried on through the night on and off, I disregarded it thinking it would go away but when I woke up the next morning I got out of bed when i collapsed onto one knee, I then stood up and sat on the bed and This was when I realised I had to go to hospital. I got driven to Shrewsbury hospital when I arrived there at 6am. I walked into the hospital and informed the receptionist what had happened to me. I felt dizzy so she got a nurse to attend to me and she put me in a wheelchair. This was the last time I stood up. it's been over a year. I was taken to a bed and by 4pm the say day, I was paralysed from the neck down. This has changed my life completely. Doctors and nurses had no diagnosis for me for over 2 weeks. The decision was made for me to be transferred to Oswestry hospital where for a further 6 days they still had no diagnosis for me and my organs were further shutting down. Only by chance a neurologist was given clinical practice and agreed to examine me and at 6:30pm the next day examining me asked the doctors for the result of a lumber puncture which had not been done. One was then carried out as a matter of urgency and results were given as Guillian-Barre Syndrome and within a matter oftimeI went unconscious with severe breathing difficulties. I was then transferred back to shrewsbury hospital when I woke up from an induced coma with a trachiostomy tube coming from out of my neck. I could not talk but I could smile when nurses made me laugh. I was there for 3 and a half months in intensive care then transferred to Oswestry for rehabilitation to get me back on my feet. From the day this illness occurred, my life has been taken away from me, my business has been taken away from me all within 10 hours. My day from when I wake up until I go to sleep is such a struggle as I am in so much pain and frustration as I am unable to do basic tasks for myself. My illness can affect anyone from any age range, fitness, male or female. This illness was very unexpected for me as I was out working everyday and thought I was reasonably healthy. I hope this has given you an understanding and made you aware of my illness. Many thanks, Adrian
