hello. my name is Daniel and I'm 20 years old from Costa Rica, when I was 13 years old I was diagnosed with Guillain barre syndrome which affects the nerves connected the muscles. The syndrome didn't hit me that hard cause only my feet got paralyzed as far as I can remember while there are some people whose whole body is paralyzed when having the same syndrome. the problem came afterwards, for some reason my calves muscles and forearms muscles wasted A LOT. those muscles are severely atrophied and my calves and forearms look similar to a 8 year old thin kid, no kidding. While I'm actually in my proper weight, I had to cope with all the teases in high school because of the legs and that stuff.. I have done a lot to change that, gym, special exercises, physical therapy etc however I have seen no result and I'm starting to think I'll have to deal with it for the rest of my life, I guess there's nerve damage which doesn't allow the muscle to get the proper mass. is there anything else to do at least for the calves issue? surgery, etc? thanks to everyone.
