I have hypothyroidism and recently went to the hospital because I felt weak and exhausted. When I got to the hospital my red blood cell count was 5.6 ...the doctors gave me a blood transfusion and the next day I developed paralysis and was diagnosed with Guillian Barre Syndrome. Does Low red blood cell count part of the GBS or is this something else? Can the thyroid be causing this

I am an artist - musician, age 56, male, married, residing in Goa at present with my family. I was a victim of GB Syndrome at the age of 36 in the year 1991. Doctors who treated : Dr Dubhashi at GMC, Dr Nathan at Shushrusha, Dr Arun Shah, Dr Mahale(cardiologist), Dr Prajakta Kanitkar in Pune, Dr S Y Kalelkar in Mumbai and Dr Shyam Bhandarey in Goa. Due to cardiac problem I was advised not to do vigorous physical exercises. With the help of Prescribed Medicine, meditation and active performance of classical music I could recover upto 90%; that too after 19 years. Disability has remained in the legs. Can I come out of that?

I fell last week mainly because I have Guillain Barre Syndrome and so do not have much balance control although I have had it for 15 years and it took 6 weeks before I had a diagnosis! My right ankle has always been weak due to several sprains. Now it is it still swollen, I am applying ice and elevation. Any other brilliant ideas. Thank you.
